Greer Noble's insight:

Excellent footage.. yes, if governments, like America and Britain.. but more especially China, stop sending tourists to countries that are not doing everything in their power to stop poaching, this would send a very powerful message to these countries that WILDLIFE IS WORTH MORE ALIVE THAN DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!

Wildlife Margrit's curator insight, January 19, 2013 11:54 AM

Cousteau says we can:

1) Get the leaders of our nations to demand putting a stop to the poaching that is creating economic instability and national security risks

2) Be more aware of the products we purchase to make sure they do not contain illegal wildlife body parts
