The Tiger Skin Trail

A report released at the 13th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (CoP13) of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) in Thailand.

The Tiger Skin Trail reveals new evidence of the illegal trade in tiger skins, drawing together information from India, Nepal and China as the source, transit and destination countries.

If the remaining populations of wild tigers and Asian leopards are to survive this current onslaught, renewed political will is required in these three countries to work together to stop the illegal skin traders before it is too late.
