The visit of a Chinese delegation to Delhi to re-look an MOU signed in 1995
with India, is worrying news for wildlife lovers. Rather than curbing use of tiger parts in medicine,
China has been insisting on going ahead with using farm-bred tiger products for its traditional medicine.
The Principal focus of the MOU is in three areas:
- Vigilance across the borders-instituting a mechanism to curb smuggling of tiger parts
- Capacity building-eg, standardising release of captive bred tigers in the wild.
- Seggregation of farm and wild products
