Saving The South China Tiger

The LA Times has an article about an effort to save the South China Tiger, Fighting for Chinese tigers, and the last word by a Wharton Alumni, Li Quan. who has founded a foundation, Save China`s Tigers. The pictures are great in the LA Times article. Basically tigers have been taken to South Africa for a captive breeding program. The trade in tiger body parts for medicine was not mentioned.

Tigers in China are the kings of the animal kingdom. They are seen as a symbol of wealth and vigor. Chinese medicine has used tiger parts because of the belief they promote vigor, which has led to many tigers being killed so their body can be used in medicines. Fortunately, viagra has been shown to be more effective for the vigor issue than medicines made from tigers. There is a proposal for China Tiger Farms for Sell Animal Parts to Aid Conservation.
