Tigers at a crossroads: Shedding light on the role of Bangladesh in the illegal trade of this iconic big cat


A new article in Conservation Science and Practice explores Bangladesh’s role in the illegal global trade in tiger parts. The researchers found that tigers were poached from India, Myanmar, and Bangladesh and parts were exported to fourteen countries, including seven G20 nations, and they conclude that the findings indicate that Bangladesh is “poised to play a pivotal role in tiger conservation over the next decade, requiring strong national strategies to reduce trade opportunities, disrupt networks and weaken demand.”
