Help End Tiger Trafficking
Globally, there are only around 3,900 tigers left in the wild. While Vietnam is home to the Indochinese tiger, according to scientists, there might be fewer than 5 tigers left in the wild in Vietnam. Tigers are hunted and farmed mainly for their bones, which are used to make tiger bone glue traditional medicine.
ENV works to tackle tiger trafficking by mobilizing the public to report tiger crimes, assisting law enforcement in addressing such crimes, and by strengthening the policies and laws concerning tiger violations. On the policy and legislation front, ENV is working with the government of Vietnam on the revision of relevant laws to address legal loopholes and strengthen the management of non-commercial facilities such as tiger farms, with the aim of reducing wildlife laundering.
In 2022, a total of 399 tiger crime cases were reported to ENV, and 703 tiger cases were successfully addressed.
