Tell Congress to Protect Tiger Habitat

GarryRogers Nature Conservation

World Wildlife Fund:  “Forests are being destroyed and degraded at alarming rates—equivalent to 36 football fields every minute.

“One major driver of forest loss and degradation is illegal logging, which includes the harvesting, transporting, processing, buying or selling of timber in violation of national laws. As the world’s largest consumer of forest products, Americans play a key role in deterring illegally sourced timber and protecting important habitats for wild tigers.

“In 2008, Congress recognized the threat of deforestation to wildlife and people by amending the Lacey Act of 1900 to prohibit illegal timber and timber products from entering the US market. It’s critical that we implement the Lacey amendments to the fullest extent possible in order to realize the benefits they can have for forests and tigers around the globe” (World Wildlife Fund).
