    All of the above are true.

    The sad thing is the illegal tiger trade is fueled by demand. Every part of the tiger, from its skin and bones to its whiskers and teeth, is exploited and used to make products such as medicine, ornamental accessories, and textiles. Today, illegal tiger trade and the wider problem of wildlife trafficking reaches an estimated $23 billion USD per year.
