STOP THE TRADE IN TIGER PARTS NOW!

This concerns a subject very close to my heart, it is something I work to stop every day. I am speaking about the illegal trade in tiger parts for traditional medicines. The demand for these medicines is wiping out the tiger in the wild, but that demand is not only in Asia. The trade in tiger medicines is active in Canada as well and this requires immediate action.

WWF-Canada, an organization I volunteer for every Wednesday, need your help to send a message to the Canadian government. All that is needed is less than 5 minutes of your time to send a letter to Stephan Dion calling upon the government to use more resources to help law enforcement stop the import and distribution of banned medicines like those containing tiger parts.

Please help!

This is horrible! I love tigers and I don't want to see them become extinct. Some humans are so cruel!

If each creature and being did not belong here they would not have been created. It must give some unbalanced people a sense of power to destroy, maim or control.

This is a disgrace, and so sad. These animals are wonderful creatures. This needs to stop.
