To the tiger`s day…

 

 

Today is International TigerDay!

But there is no reason to celebrate: Tigers are hunted mercilessly by poachers,  these beautiful big cats are among the endangered species.

In addition, the palm oil industry, which is responsible for clearing forests, has catastrophic consequences for the habitat of the tiger and for the worldwide biodiversity.

We have to do something about it before it’s too late!

Do you know these four startling facts about Tiger?
✴️ 4,000 € – 22,000 € – that’s how much a tiger in the EU costs
✴️ 1,412 – so many live captive-bred tigers were exported from the EU between 1999 and 2016
✴️ 8,278 – that’s the number of illegal tiger products (such as tiger soup cubes, teeth and claws) seized during the same period
✴️ 3,900 – so few tigers still live in the wild (the exact number of captive tigers is unknown)

Tigers are threatened with extinction. The world has already lost over 90 percent of its tiger population, because there are only about 3,900 of the animals in the wild.
In 2010, there were still an estimated 3,200 tigers in the wild in 13 states of Asia.

One hundred years ago there were more than 100,000 animals. Currently only five subspecies live, three are already extinct and one has not been spotted for decades.

About 20,000 tigers now live in captivity, most of them in zoos, tiger farms or privately owned.

Our investigators have discovered that tiger dealers operating in Europe are ready and able to sell and transport tigers to Asia. In countries where the demand for body parts of tigers for medicine is still associated with massive suffering for the animals and the decline of the wild population. In addition, China wants to allow the use of tiger bones and rhino horn of captive-bred animals in hospitals (!!)

Almost everything that comes from the tiger is considered a valuable ingredient in traditional Chinese medicine.

For example, powder from tiger bone should accelerate healing processes, relieve rheumatism and help against malaria (!!!)
On the black market alone, the backbone of a tiger costs up to 700 euros.

We must stop tiger trade. We can not allow that anymore! Call on the EU Commission to ban the trade in tigers!

Let us finally stop the #RuthlessTrade and together we call on the European Commission to prohibit the unscrupulous trade in tiger ➡️ https://tigerhandel.vier-pfoten.at/

My comment for this day is only a video, from PETA.

Which again proves the sad fact that we, the human animals,  in terms of animal morality still live on the trees!

 

My best regards to all, Venus
