Tiger Farming Economics Don’t Add Up

A briefing looking at many of the arguments put forward by supporters of tiger farming, highlighting the false assumptions used by pro-trade advocates.

We believe proponents of tiger farming have based their support on flawed assumptions and on studies which do not fully grasp or reflect the realities of illegal wildlife trade.

Because of this we are concerned that any attempts to legalise tiger trade to allow the trade in parts from captive-bred tigers will have disastrous consequences for the wild tiger.
