Danger Signals from China

China is thinking of reopening business in Tiger parts, based on farm bred animals.. Business groups are pressurizing officials. Domestic trade was banned in 1993 following international pressure. The new move has conservationists worried.
Susan Lieberman, head of WWFs Global species programme says” This could be the final step that drives the tiger towards extinction”. Global illegal trade in wildlife is worth $ 8 billion a year. Conservationists cutting across borders are working overtime to counter this new threat.
