Caged Assets: Tiger Farming and Trade

A document jointly produced by EIA, WPSI, Born Free, ENV and others on behalf of the Species Survival Network (SSN) and Education for Nature (ENV) for the 65th meeting of the Standing Committee of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).

Despite longstanding international recognition that trade in captive-source tigers poses a serious threat to the species’ survival in the wild, international and domestic commercial trade continues across Asia.

This trade involves serious and organised criminality, fosters corruption and stimulates demand for tiger parts and products, threatening precarious populations in the wild.
