The following guidelines are examples of how you can make a difference to the growing threat of extinction amongst many of Asia's most important species.
In many Asian countries wildlife is also often used to entertain tourists. Regardless of what anybody tells you - THIS IS ILLEGAL - the animals suffer and have been taken from forests, protected areas or national parks to supply this trade. Please do not encourage the handlers or owners by buying food and feeding the animal or having your photo taken with the animal. Report the incident through this website or contact the relevant authorities directly.
- Never buy products that come from endangered species. These include ivory, rhino horn and turtle shell objects, shark fin, shahtoosh shawls and tiger skins and products derived from the body parts of tigers
- Avoid food that comes from endangered species like shark fin and turtle soup, tiger meat, snake, monkey and bear parts.
- Seek alternatives to traditional medicine that contain extracts of tigers, bears, sharks and rhinos.
- Tell your friends and relatives to do the same. Consuming these products will lead to the deaths of more of these threatened species and their eventual extinction in the wild. Warn potential buyers of these products that they risk fines and jail if they are caught. Laws do exist in most countries that prohibit the trade, possession and consumption of wildlife.
- Help to raise funds to support conservation projects.
- Donate your time and skills to conservation activities.
- Tell your your government representatives to do more to protect wildlife, they work for you after all
- Teach your children to respect and appreciate nature, their future depends on it
