Help stop plans for 'new Tiger Temple'
Our recent investigation revealed that Tiger Temple Co. Ltd has changed its name to Golden Tiger (Thailand) Co. Ltd. and worryingly, construction has already started on a new venue in Kanchanaburi.
Tiger Temple, on the temple grounds of Wat Pa Luangta Maha Bua Yannasampanno in the Kanchanaburi province, was shut down last year after dozens of dead tiger cubs and hundreds of other tiger parts were discovered during a police raid. The 147 tigers confiscated from the Tiger Temple raid are still being cared for by the Thai Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP).
Golden Tiger Co Ltd. has a provisional license to operate as a zoo, transferred over from Tiger Temple Co Ltd..
Time is running out
However, the zoo license will not be validated to a full license unless Golden Tiger Co. Ltd, meets 11 specified conditions within six months, including providing enclosures deemed large enough for the tigers and vet care. But these requirements fail to ban breeding or stop cruel tourist interactions with tigers at the proposed new venue.
Action is needed urgently before the Thai authorities grant Golden Tiger Co Ltd. a full zoo license.
We’re deeply concerned that if the new venue opens, tigers will be put at risk again of being illegally trafficked, bred for profit and exposed to more horrific cruelty.

Urge Thai authorities to do the right thing
You can help send the urgent message to the Thai authorities that tiger cruelty is not acceptable.
By signing the petition, you help us convince the Thai Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) to do the right thing.
The more signatures we can gather, the more likely it is that the authorities will listen and we’ll be able to put a stop to this cruel venture.
To protect tigers, the Thai Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) must not grant Golden Tiger Co. Ltd, the business behind the cruel Tiger Temple venue, the full zoo license needed to open a new attraction.
Tiger Temple was shut down for a reason. Do not allow more tigers to be put in danger by approving a new wildlife tourist attraction operated by the same company as before.
We must protect tigers: they are wild animals, not entertainers.
