What's the problem?
While tigers number less than 3000 today, China's 1993 ban on the use of tiger parts, and its enforcement, has been instrumental in ensuring that the species does not go extinct.
All the same, some Chinese investors have created tiger farms, with the intention of breeding tigers and slaughtering them (like poultry). They are now lobbying the Chinese government to permit the use of farmed tigers in products like medicines and wines.
So how does that affect wild tigers?
Rearing tigers is expensive requiring $3,000-4,000 a year to feed a single animal. A poached tiger, on the other hand, can be acquired for as little as $50. A poached tiger may therefore be smuggled in and passed off as a captive-bred tiger. It's simple economics. If farmed tigers cost 80 TIMES as much as poached ones, wouldn't the demand for poached tigers sky-rocket? There can be no doubt that this move will drive tigers EXTINCT.
While farming the world's most beautiful animal is indeed cruel, the fact that it will wipe it out, forever, is a compelling reason to ask the Chinese government not to reconsider its commendable stance.

Focus:Animal WelfareAction Request:PetitionLocation:United StatesSave Our FL Panther, Stop the Over-development of Florida
Target: Charlie Crist, Governor, Great State of Florida
Sponsor: Ceci M Madruga, http://www.care2.com/c2c/group/FloridaPanthers
ATTN: GOVERNOR CHARLIE CRIST
FROM THE PEOPLE OF CARE2.com, THE WORLD OVER!
The purpose of this petition is to make it known to the Government of Florida that it is no longer acceptable to destroy this state. The environment, the wildlife has been put at great risk, and it is no longer a "sit back and wait" situation, we must take control and take our state back for our Florida Panthers, Manatees, Bald Eagles, Alligators, and all those suffering the effects of over-development. We know the time has come for a showdown with the developers and greedy politicians spread out all over our state. If they are allowed to continue to build uncontrollably we will no longer have the state we all know and love, but a skeleton of what once was a paradise. All that we know, all that we have loved all our lives will slowly die and disappear, including our beloved Florida Panther, as well as our Manatees, our beautiful birds, and just about every unique and special flora and fauna that reside here in this great state. Roads shouldn't drive land use decisions, and support is needed now for the Florida Forever Act (the state land acquisition program) to be funded at an increased amount during this legislative session. We also truly believe that Florida stands much more of a chance against global warming in it's most natural state, than it would as a block of cement.

http://articles.news.aol.com/news/article.adp?id=20051125090009990003&_mpc=news.10.1&cid=842From a PETA e-mail, 12/2/05:
Thank you for contacting us about the two cheetah cubs who were rescued by American troops in Gode, Ethiopia. We are grateful that these two cubs have been removed from such an abusive situation. On Wednesday, November 30, the cubs were airlifted to Addis Ababa and released on the grounds of the National Palace, where palace staff will care for them.Sadly, such exploitation of wildlife is not uncommon. As is the case in many African nations, Ethiopia’s animal protection laws are weak, and existing regulations are rarely enforced. We hope that this rescue will increase international pressure on the Ethiopian government to improve animal protection laws. You can help by writing a short, polite letter to the Ethiopian ambassador urging him to give animals the time and attention that they deserve:
His Excellency Kassahun Ayele
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary
3506 International Dr., N.W.
Washington, DC 20008
Cheetahs are in very real danger. Poaching, ranchers, loss of habitat, and competition with large predators have significantly impacted their numbers. Cheetahs need large areas of land to survive, but with the expanding human population throughout Africa, their habitat is shrinking.
The Cheetah Conservation Fund is an international charitable organization devoted to protecting this endangered species. The group’s International Research and Education Centre is based in Namibia. For more information about the Cheetah Conservation Fund’s efforts, you may contact the organization’s U.S. office:

You were one hell of a man. Thanks for caring for the animals. You will always be loved and appreciated for all that you did to help them, and to all that you educated. I'll miss you terribly mate.
To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets:
1. They live here. You don't.
2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the
furniture. (That's why they call it "fur"niture.)
3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter
who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.
