Campaigners from the Environmental Investigation Agency will be at WildlifeXpo, a major new wildlife exhibition at London’s Alexandra Palace this Friday and Saturday.
The event will bring together some of the leading lights in wildlife and conservation, and will provide a huge range of talks, lectures and other activities.
Attending as a member of the successful Save Wild Tigers coalition, alongside our partner organisations Born Free Foundation and WildAid and supported by The Clinton Partnership, we’ll be presenting a film on tiger conservation in Palm Court Suite #5 on Saturday from 11am-12.
Later on Saturday, EIA tiger campaigner Alasdair Cameron will be addressing the forum Saving Wild Tigers – Turning Words Into Action, alongside our partners at 2.30pm in the Panorama Room.
Throughout the two-day event, which runs from 10am-8pm on Friday and 10am-5pm on Saturday, we will also be on hand at a stall in the West Hall to meet supporters and talk about our work in tiger conservation.
EIA tackles the tiger trade by supporting targeted enforcement efforts to combat the illegal trade in skins, bones and derivatives. It investigates the criminal networks and consumer markets driving the trade and campaigns to phase out tiger farms, which undermine efforts to save wild tigers by stimulating demand for tiger parts.
“WildlifeXpo is a great opportunity for EIA and Save Wild Tigers to get our message across to a huge number of people, and to discuss possible solutions to save the tiger,” said Alasdair.
“The illegal wildlife trade is one of the biggest threats facing the tiger, and we’ll be talking about how EIA’s first-hand experience of the mechanisms of this trade can be used to help save the wild tiger.”
Day tickets are £10 for adults, £8 for senior citizens, £5 for children, and under-fives are free.
