Falling Through the System: The role of the European Union captive tiger population in the trade in tigers

Posted on 30 September 2020


Weak legislation and limited checks on private captive tiger facilities across the EU and the UK provide a significant opportunity for tiger parts, such as skins and bones, to enter illegal trade, according to this joint report from WWF and TRAFFIC. Based on an analysis of CITES trade data, the EU and the UK continue to trade in live tigers and tiger parts and products with countries where tiger farms are known to feed the illegal tiger trade, such as China, Thailand, and Viet Nam.
