Pamela Anderson wants to fight exotic animal trade.

Actress and animal rights activist Pamela Anderson has her eyes set on halting the exotic pets trade in the UAE.

When shown a recent photo of a tiger spotted in a 4x4 driving around Dubai's Jumeirah Beach Residence, the former 'Baywatch' star and PETA ambassador shook her head in sadness and said it was "heartbreaking".

"Oh that's terrible! This is from here?" Pammy asked 7DAYS as she held the picture before her appearance at Dubai nightspot the Vip Room on Tuesday.

Asked what she would say to residents spotted cruising around town with their endangered 'pets', Anderson said: "Exotic animals don't belong in any household.

They belong in the wild. They don't even belong in the zoo. So having a wild animal as a personal pet is terrible and terrifying for the animal."

Anderson, who previously raised eyebrows by writing to fast-food giant KFC over chicken welfare, added: "I think if you're good to animals, you're good to people - so I think this is a poor representation for someone who's trying to be good in the world, because it's obviously ignorance, and very sad.

"There's people that I want to meet in the Middle East to talk about a lot of different issues - and one of them is the animal issue here."

Anderson, who is famous for her role as lifeguard CJ Parker on hit TV series 'Baywatch', also shared that her previously announced plans to build an eco-friendly resort in Abu Dhabi had been put on hold, but she hoped the project will come to life someday.

And asked how many of the famous red 'Baywatch' bathing suits she still owned, Anderson said: "I have one left - it's in my safe."

"I wear it every once in a while," she added giggling while twirling her bottle blonde tresses.

But those hoping to see the 45-year-old running in slow motion again will be disappointed, Anderson denied reports that she will star in a rumoured 'Baywatch' film.
