Illegal wildlife trafficking is big business – with low risk and high returns. The poaching or the illegal trade of protected or managed species has become an international crisis in the past decade.
Consequences are grave and wide-ranging – from the extinction of many species, to disrupted ecosystems that were once home to the wildlife, to lost resources in the impacted communities to the larger threats posed against humans when terrorist networks are involved.
