Myanmar highlighted as a hub in ending the trade in tiger parts.
The illicit trade in tiger skins and parts has continued unabated in Asia, with Myanmar considered a trading hub rife with unregulated markets and lax enforcement, two wildlife conservation groups said in a new report. Despite environmental groups’ efforts, there has been no decline in tiger trafficking across Asia since 2000, the report by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and TRAFFIC revealed. On average, more than two tigers are seized by traffickers per week. See link below to read the report in the Myanmar Times.
