Wildlife trafficking

Postby Pajarita » Wed Jan 11, 2017 10:58 am

Three different articles but all of the dealing with the same subject: poaching!

The first one is about baby IRNs poached from the wild in India and been sold in a market. The second is about how this illegal trade has flourished in certain countries which have become kind of like the 'nexus' of trafficking live animals as well as body parts of animals poached from the wild. And the third is about the possibility that some of the poached animals moved to a different country could become colonies of these species in their adoptive countries which might be a way of forestalling their decline in the wild (silver lining?).
