Average of 110 tigers each year entering the illegal trade chain in Asia.

A comprehensive analysis of 16 years of Tiger seizures shows that Asia’s failure to ramp up enforcement, close Tiger farms, strengthen laws and reduce demand are to blame for the persistent illegal trade in Tiger parts. The report released on the eve of the international conference on illegal wildlife trade taking place this week in Ha Noi, said these issues existed to varying degrees across all the 13 Tiger range countries scrutinized, evidenced by the minimum of 1755 Tigers seized from 2000-2015, an average of more than two animals per week.  Please follow the link below to read this disturbing report from TRAFFIC.
