Chinese e-Commerce companies declare zero-tolerance towards illegal online wildlife trading
8th June 2012. 15 of the leading e-commerce sellers operating in China, including Alibaba, Taobao, and Tencent, have signed a declaration stating they have a zero-tolerance policy towards their services being used to conduct illegal wildlife trading.
The statement says sellers and buyers must comply with all aspects of China's Wild Animal Protection Law and regulations under CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) governing the trade in wildlife goods.
The article contains a rough tranlation of the declaration.
