For species like tigers and rhinos, poaching is a primary threat to survival. But, as Dr. Nijman pointed out, any solutions for tackling illegal wildlife trade are unlikely to work without the involvement of one major player: China. From ivory to pangolin scales, totoaba bladders to shark fins, the country has a ravenous appetite for wildlife products.

Officials also pledged to strictly control trade, a reassurance that did little to assuage concerns that poaching was about to spiral even further out of control. Louies said. Following a global outcry, the State Council this month reversed course and postponed implementation of the order. But the episode has left conservationists wary — not least because the history here is far from encouraging.
But for decades afterward, China permitted domestic sales of products made from these animals. Rhino horn and tiger bone were smuggled into the country from abroad, and tiger farms were set up in the late s — some with government backing — to breed big cats for bones, skins and parts. Wild tigers had been mostly poached in China years earlier.
In , under a law called the Pelly Amendment, President Bill Clinton threatened China with sanctions for undermining the Cites treaty. China responded with a ban on rhino horn and tiger bone, and poaching declined significantly.
