The tiger is protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), an agreement among 175 nations to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) is the federal agency responsible for the U.S. Government’s implementation of CITES.
In 1994, the United States Congress passed a law to establish the Rhinoceros and Tiger Conservation Fund to help protect, conserve, and manage these amazing species. Since 1996, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has used this fund to support anti -poaching initiatives, development of nature reserves, wildlife surveys and monitoring, management of human-wildlife conflict, public awareness campaigns, and other conservation efforts related to tiger survival.
Current Sanctuaries are often run by small charities and are limited on staff, resources, and land. The US federal government has a lot of unused land and the president could designate specific land as a national park and use this to house big cats.
