Whether the tiger goes extinct in the next 10 years is all up to China, because that's where all the demand for tiger bones and body parts is coming from. The Chinese government could launch a massive public education campaign, start enforcing international wildlife trafficking laws and essentially be the hero that saved the tiger from disappearing. Or, the Chinese can continue tolerating trade in tigers, and become forever known as the nation and people who drove the world's favorite animal into extinction.
So what do you think? Will China step up to the plate? Join the conversation.
