EDM | Tigertime Campaign

Posted on: 6th July 2010

Andrew George MP has signed EDM number 1806 in 2010-11, proposed by Tessa Munt on 12/05/2011.

The motion reads,

That this House commends the work of the artist and conservationist David Shepherd on his 80th birthday and notes the launch of his worldwide movement to save the tiger in the wild, TigerTime; expresses its backing for the wider aims of TigerTime; supports the first major TigerTime initiative which is to call on the government of China to demonstrably increase its enforcement work to suppress the trade in illegal tiger parts, including greater use of covert surveillance and intelligence-led targeting and prosecution of key organised criminals, consistent with Wen Jiabao’s statement at the International Tiger Forum; and calls for concerted international action to secure the world’s tiger population for future generations.
