China failed in its duty to protect tigers: EIA

STAFF WRITER 21:21 HRS IST

New Delhi, Oct 22 (PTI) China which is all set to observe next year as the “Year of the Tiger” has utterly failed in checking the smuggling parts of the endangered big cats in the wild, conservationists alleged today after carrying out an undercover operation.

“China has run out of excuses. They tell us that they are doing their best, but we have been warning them about this for years and there are still huge gaps in their enforcement effort. If they can put a man into space, they can do more to save the wild tiger,” Debbie Banks, lead campaigner of the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), told reporters here.
