The Premier of China, Wen Jiabao has publicly stated that he is committed to saving the wild tiger. (Read his comment - Nov 2010) However, his government is allowing trade in tiger skins from tiger farms and skins taken before poaching was outlawed. This trade is acting as a smokescreen for skins taken by killing wild tigers. If China does not stop this trade, the wild tiger is doomed. See how they obtain the tigers and more tiger farm images.
