It seems a real effort to educate the people about how serious it is to keep using tigers for false medicines would help stop poaching.

A lot of this is the same old story. If the WWF can spark a change in mentality, more power to them. You can try to educate people, but sometimes you realize you are only talking At people.

They should have done this a long time ago but I don't have much faith that these countries will follow through with it. Until the last tiger falls, will they realize their mistake. Whatever happens to the beast will also happen to man because we are all connected.

We can only hope it's in time - and the poachers are caught before the killing. Noted and thank you.

We are all connected. We shall follow in the wake of the tigers death. Laws that will be worth the paper they are written on? This is not going to stop poachers. You need to educate people that tiger parts are not magical and they are driving tigers to extinction
