Chinese Health Nuts "Biggest Threat" To India's Bengal Tigers

Traditional medicine in China has Indian poachers slaughtering Bengal tigers in greater numbers and shipping their body parts up north for cold hard cash.

Although the tiger population in India is actually on the rise, there is an alarming increase in poaching of the country’s big cats. Recent data released last week show that India lost approximately 48 tigers last year to poachers, up from 32 in 2012, according to the Wildlife Protection Society of India.

“Until the demand is addressed and stopped, tigers will go on being killed by poachers,” Belinda Wright, head of the Wildlife Protection Society, told the South China Morning Post on Monday. “This issue of demand is something that can only be tackled by China.”

EIA Executive Director and Elephant Campaign head Mary Rice on yesterday's destruction in China of more than six tonnes of black market ivory ...

China crushes six tonnes of ivory in crackdown on illegal trade

- The illegal stockpile was destroyed in a landmark move but critics say it is just a fraction of the total -

... The ivory crush comes after the United States destroyed six tonnes of stockpiled ivory in November last year. However, unlike the US, which destroyed its entire stockpile, 6.1 tonnes only represents a small fraction of China’s seized ivory. Some commentators remain unconvinced about China’s sincerity to follow through and combat the ivory trade after this event.

Mary Rice, from the Environmental Investigation Agency, pointed out: “Disposing of contraband ivory carries little meaning while the authorities are actively promoting a legal market which they claim is regulated and controlled through a registration and ID card system that clearly is not working.

“Mixed messages to consumers and confusing and complicated rules and regulations for enforcement personnel only serve to provide laundering mechanisms for illegal ivory to enter the market.”

The momentum sparked by the #SeaWorld exposé Blackfish continues ...

Activists urge Southwest to drop SeaWorld over whale concerns

More than 27,000 people have signed a petition calling on Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE:LUV) to drop its partnership with SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE:SEAS), over the theme park's treatment of its marine mammals, reports Change.org, the site that is hosting the petition.

The petition urges Southwest to end its marketing partnership with SeaWorld, which is facing mounting criticism in the aftermath of Blackfish, a documentary that details problems with orcas at SeaWorld parks, including injuries and deaths of trainers and whales. The film also documents the process of capturing orcas from the wild, including separating calves from their mothers.

"Southwest needs to understand that they are promoting animal cruelty seen in Blackfish if they continue to partner with SeaWorld as they have done for the last 25 years," said Robin Merritt, who launched the petition in November. "They do promotional deals, send out joint-press releases patting each other on the back, and are working hand in hand to profit from the misery of animals exploited for SeaWorld."

Merritt and other activists are planning to present the petition to Southwest at the airline's corporate headquarters at Dallas Love Field Airport on January 8th.
