Hope For Tigers?

The majority of tigers are not killed by habitat destruction or human over-population, but rather by poachers attempting to support their families via the black market for traditional Chinese medicines. A tiger is worth up to $200,000

I want to say that I feel sorry for poachers who are just trying to feed their families, but I can't. Using animal parts for cures is truly 16th century thinking. TY Cher and Merry Christmas!

Until we eliminate the poverty which enables poaching, it will never end.

All the petitions, charities, fund-raisers and posters in the world won't solve the problem.

Hunt the hunters.The only good hunter is a dead one.
Pam W poverty is not an issue.It is naive of you to believe it is.It is all about making mega dollars by thesetrailer trash scumbags

Common sense and commitment will win out in order to save the tiger. Just when we thought the panda would never be seen again, China came to its senses.

I sympathize with those just trying to support their families, I honestly do, but poaching is not the way to go about it. It causes much more harm than good and creates many complications for the environment and for the species later on down the line.
