Tell Congress to Protect Tiger Habitats

Forests are being destroyed and degraded at alarming rates — equivalent to 36 football fields every minute.

One major driver of forest loss and degradation is illegal logging, which includes the harvesting, transporting, processing, buying or selling of timber in violation of national laws. As the world's largest consumer of forest products, Americans play a key role in deterring illegally sourced timber and protecting important habitats for wild tigers.

In 2008, Congress recognized the threats of degradation and deforestation to wildlife and people by amending the Lacey Act of 1900 to prohibit illegal timber and timber products from entering the US market. It's critical that we implement the Lacey amendments to the fullest extent in order to realize the benefits they can have for forests and species around the globe.

Take action and tell Congress you support the 2008 Lacey amendments.
