Save the Tiger Campaign

A technical mission from the secretariat of the Convention on International Trade

in Endangered species (CITES) will visit Cambodia in April, according to a press

release from the British Embassy. The visit will be part of a larger worldwide campaign

to save the tiger, launched Jan 20 by the British Ministry of Environment and the

Foreign Office.

The officials will meet with local officials and assist Cambodians in working towards

more effective controls. Cambodia, a member of CITES, has an undetermined tiger population

which is under threat from poachers who kill the animal to sell for use in making

medicines.
