Stiftung für das Tier im Recht (TIR)

Stiftung für das Tier im Recht (TIR) is a non-profit organisation in Switzerland. TIR has established itself as a centre of excellence on legal matters pertaining to animals with the aim to raise the legal standards of animal protection laws to meet higher ethical requirements.

With 10% of the world’s wildlife trade taking place in Switzerland, political systems are inadequate to deal with the issue and the dialogue is conservative and outdated. Politicians are badly informed and as a consequence bad decisions are being made. TIR seeks to ignite political, legislative, and public debate on the wildlife trade in Switzerland and through a competence centre which provides reliable information to concerned stakeholders.

Through a Wildlife Action Plan, TIR aims to strengthen wild animal protections; initiate stronger debates on the political, legislative and public levels regarding the wildlife trade; and, have a lobby group of politicians from different political parties to represent international wildlife topics.
