UPDATE: The Big Cat Public Safety Act has garnered strong bipartisan support in both the House and Senate. Recently, the House of Representatives passed the bill, and it now faces a tougher battle in the Senate.
There are around 5,000 captive tigers here in the US. We must ensure laws are in place to prevent these animals from ending up in the illegal trade in tiger parts and products that remains a primary threat to wild tigers. With 2022 being the Year of the Tiger on the Chinese calendar, it's time that we finally see the US Government act on this longstanding conservation issue.
Ask your Members of Congress to cosponsor the Big Cat Public Safety Act, which would help ensure that the US does its part in the fight against illegal tiger trade.
Additional Senate cosponsors will help ensure that the bill gets a vote and becomes law. If your senator has already co-sponsored the bill, you will not be able to send them this message. Not sure if your senator(s) are cosponsors already? Check the list of current cosponsors for their name. [SENATE]
