London, UK, 12th February 2014—The UK Government today announced its support for a programme to protect and recover wild Tigers by reducing the demand for their bones and other body parts.

The commitment is part of the UK Government’s ongoing support for the Global Tiger Recovery Program (GTRP), endorsed by all 13 Tiger range countries at the ‘Tiger Summit’ held in St Petersburg in 2010 and was made ahead of the London Conference on Illegal Wildlife Trade currently taking place and hosted by UK Foreign Secretary William Hague.
