Wildlife crime is now the most urgent threat to many of the world’s species. Incredible giants like elephants and rhinos could be gone from the world before your children would have the chance to coexist with these beautiful and intelligent animals that have roamed Earth for more than 50 million years.
Illegal wildlife trade has sadly exploded to meet a yet increasing demand for elephant ivory, rhino horns and tiger products. The trade is controlled by dangerous crime syndicates who carelessly traffic wildlife much like drugs or weapons.
