Welcome to this week's news update

Dear TRAFFIC supporter,

Richard Thomas, Global Communications Co-ordinator, TRAFFIC. Email: richard.thomas@traffic.org Tel: +44 1223 651782.

This week was dominated with news of the adoption by the United Nations General Assembly of a resolution on Tackling the Illicit Trafficking in Wildlife. It was an historic event and an important outcome from three years of diplomatic efforts.

A day before the UN event was Glotal Tiger Day on 29th July, when news for Asia's iconic mammal was mixed: good news from Bhutan, where a national survey found an increase in numbers of the striped predator from 75 to 103. However, concern for Malaysia's Tigers is growing, with the subspecies found there recently classified as Critically Endangered and the remaining animals threatened by poaching. Earlier in the week, Malaysia demonstrated it does have a commitment to tackle wildlife crime, through an operation to clamp down on online internet trafficking of wildlife.
