Enough is Enough! No More Dead Tigers - Deadline 29 July

 

The Malaysian Conservation Alliance for Tigers (MYCAT) is calling for 100,000 signatures to seek justice for the Malayan tiger by Global Tiger Day on 29 July 2016.

The online petition also calls for strengthened prosecution against wildlife crime and better protection for Tiger habitats and can be signed online, not just by Malaysian citizens at bit.do/mycatpetition

“Time and again Malaysia has seen Tiger traffickers and traders get away with a slap on the wrist, although the law allows for so much more. Why should they get away with lenient sentences, when Tigers get the death penalty?” said Dr Kae Kawanishi, Tiger biologist and MYCAT General Manager.
