Truthfully, I can't see this being very effective coning from the UK. If this generated from India or China, I would believe in it .

Every effort counts, but the main problem is the demand and desire for such items, not to mention the never ending poaching. Like spam, it just doesn't go away but is far deadlier in outcome.

Until China bans the use of tiger parts I believe it is hopeless.

Make it illegal to have Tiger body parts in every country, with severe consequences for having them. This is a great start. Thanks, my friend

Hope this will bear some fruit, a start, yes, but not getting to the root yet. Thx

I wish them every success, but it's very hard to change people's ideas when they are so deeply engrained in the culture.
