Tiger Statement for President Hu Jintao's Visit


17 Nov. 2006

On the eve of Chinese President Hu Jintao's visit to India, twelve NGOs from around the word including three NGOs in India - WWF, WPSI, and WTI - have issued a joint statement to express their concern about the present tiger crisis. In particular, the statement urges China not to reopen the trade in tiger products, as "to allow any trade from any source under any circumstances at this point in time would mark a further step towards the extinction of wild tigers".

The group also released a document on Tiger Trade Facts and Fallacies that many of you might find interesting. Please help save wild tigers by getting the information out to as wide an audience as possible. Copies of the two documents can be downloaded here:
