Miriam O., a Care2 Member, is fighting to save tigers. Will you help? 

                  

             
                     

            Stop the Illegal Trade in 
            Tiger Bone Paste 
                     
                        Sign Miriam's Petition  
                 
                     
                 Vladimir,

                  The tiger is one of the most magnificent and imperiled animals on the planet — but their bones are literally being ground to paste in Vietnam to make an unproven painkiller used in China.

                  Care2 member Miriam O. has started a petition to save the lives of tigers threatened by the illegal trade in tiger parts. Please sign her petition to help.

                  Ninety-seven percent of the world's tigers have been lost in just over a century, with as few as 3,200 remaining in the world.

                  But that hasn't stopped unscrupulous smugglers and killers from continuing the illegal trade in tiger parts. Even as more and more tiger habitat is lost, these criminals are killing some of the last of the great cats on the planet and fueling a vicious cycle that can only end in extinction.

                  Vietnam, one of the least environmentally regulated countries in southeast Asia, is a natural hub for the trade of tiger parts. The country's bureaucrats reportedly even accept bribes in the form of tiger paste and other products from imperiled species.

                  2015 is a crucial year for tigers, and Miriam needs your help to spotlight the illegal tiger trade that is driving these rare cats to extinction.

                  Please sign Miriam's petition to Chinese leaders right now, and take a stand to protect one of the most iconic and endangered animals on the planet.

                  By adding your name, you'll send a powerful message to the leaders of the world's largest market for tiger products. Together, we can make a difference.

                  For the wild ones,

                         Chris B.
