New from Wild Open Eye: Fighting the illegal tiger trade in Vietnam, an ENV news release


Hugh Paxton’s Blog continues to bombard loyal readers with wildlife crime stuff. When wildlife crime stops, I’ll stop. Could take a while!

This comes courtesy of my beloved brother Charles and my dear friend Andy of Wild Open Eye. And some underpaid brave men and women in Vietnam. And the ENV! Probably underpaid, too.

Cheers from Bangkok!

Hello Wildopeneye Readers,

Although the wild tiger population has decreased dramatically in Vietnam, tigers continue
to be traded for their bones which are used in tiger bone medicine, and are also consumed
in the form of wine which contains whole tiger cubs or parts of tigers. To stop the illegal
tiger trade in Vietnam, ENV has been taking a three-pronged approach, working with law
enforcement, decision-makers, and the public.

By conducting major investigations and with the help of public reporting, our crime unit
has beenworking hard to document, track and prevent tiger crimes. Since 2006, ENV has
documented 280 violations involving the trading, transporting, possessing or advertising
of tigers or tiger products.
