Tigers are in Trouble
Fortunately, we know how to help. By cracking down on illegal poaching, creating and protecting parks, and supporting recovering tiger populations, we can ensure that tigers survive for generations to come.
But Congress may abandon the wildlife stamp that provides crucial funding for projects like these that protect tigers. In just one year, the Save Vanishing Species stamp has raised $1.58 million for wildlife conservation – all at zero cost to tax payers. And now Congress could let it expire.
With the stamp up for renewal, we can convince Congress to do the right thing and protect tigers. But only if we speak up.
President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton are upping the ante in the global struggle against poaching and illegal wildlife trafficking.
As I write this, they are in Southeast Asia meeting with heads of state. And for possibly the first time in history, wildlife is high on their agenda. They'll be discussing ways these nations can thwart poachers and reduce the insatiable demand for ivory and other wildlife body parts such as tiger bones and pelts.
These talks are laying critical groundwork for trade negotiations happening in early December that are poised to add ground-breaking environmental and conservation policies directly into our agreements with these countries.
There's a tough road ahead. With high prices on animals' heads, it's clear that criminal networks have everything to gain from killing wildlife. But countries across Southeast Asia, as well as Africa, have everything to lose from the instability, murder, disease, and economic disruption created by poaching.
These agreements support Southeast Asian countries in tackling the illegal trade occurring in their backyards and help take a bite out of the black market for wildlife body parts. They do this by raising local awareness, increasing law enforcement, and improving local governance.
This week, two of the world's most powerful diplomats have the ear of governments that can do something about saving tigers and elephants from poaching. This is an unprecedented opportunity. Are you on board?
Two of the world's most powerful diplomats are putting their weight behind saving tigers, elephants, and other wildlife being driven to extinction by poaching.
