China Calls for Tiger Protection
JANUARY 4, 2010
India’s newfound partnership with China on environment issues has yielded results in the area of tiger protection as well. In what could be seen as a new year’s gift for the Indian tiger, China’s State Forestry Administration has issued a directive calling for the protection of tigers, especially the need to step up action against illegal trade in tiger parts and products. You can put tigers on a farm for legal parts harvesting and still call it "protection."
