The Connection Between Species Extinction, Organized Crime, and the Spread of Disease - Poaching

The Connection Between Species Extinction, Organized Crime, and the Spread of Disease - Poaching | Biodiversity IS Life  – #Conservation #Ecosystems #Wildlife #Rivers #Forests #Environment | Scoop.it

Dec. 8, 2012 - Huffington Post Green

THE CONNECTION BETWEEN SPECIES EXTINCTION, ORGANIZED CRIME, AND THE SPREAD OF DISEASE: POACHING

There is no lack of reasons to join efforts to stop wildlife trafficking. Together, we need to protect the source, break the chain and stop demand.

This year alone (2012), we anticipate that 30,000 African elephants will be killed for their ivory. It is estimated that 448 black rhinos were poached in 2012 in South Africa to meet the demand for their horns in Southeast Asia and China. Today, only 3,200 tigers remain in the wild because so many have been killed for their parts. More than 25 million individual sharks will be killed this year for their fins, including many from endangered species.,,

pdjmoo's insight:

Slaughtering our elephant and rhinos for two small pieces of ivory, destroying their matriarch families for the sake of profit MUST END. Then  we are decimating shark populations just for their fins and tigers for their mythical healing parts, deforestation killing off all life within them for logging and palm oil...WHERE DOES IT STOP?
