LOBBYING EXPENSE

August 22, 2011: USFWS proposed rule to remove crossed or generic tiger from exemption under CBW TEXT PDF and Comments to OPPOSE HERE Deadline 9/21/2011

WWF USA has been lobbying since 2009 to advocate for revisions to USFWS (US Fish and Wildlife Service) domestic captive tiger reporting requirements, and to remove the "generic" tiger breeding exemption approved by FWS in 1998. If this shortsighted WWF idea is approved, it would be a very bad news for tigers, and might cause their total extinction, in the wild as well in captivity. Recently in the 2nd quarter of 2010, WWF is also lobbying for the "Animal Welfare Act amendment-advocating to include more robust reporting requirements for owners of captive tigers." What this means is that in addition to Lacey act which is under USDI/USFWS , USDA Animal Welfare Act would have to be amended as well.
