Whole species are being hunted to extinction, as part of an illegal trade that benefits organised criminals and armed gangs. We want you to add your voice to ours and say “enough is enough”.
• The illegal wildlife trade is valued at between $7–$23 billion USD per year and is one of the five most lucrative global crimes.
• It’s not just a crime against wildlife, 1,000 rangers have been killed in the last ten years, which is two per week, every week.
• In South Africa alone, one arrest for rhino related crime happens every day.
• Nearly 20 tons of pangolin scales were seized from illegal shipments originating from Africa between 2013 and 2016, according to U.S. officials. They said the scales came from as many as 39,000 pangolins.
Will you support us and help preserve these animals or will you do nothing as they vanish from our world forever?
