Kate-Lyn's Tut group's curator insight, October 2, 2013 4:22 PM

Sarah - here is an issue to look at for environmental and wildlife politics. Poaching is an all too common tragedy and i think that the view of looking at how the government is aiding this and preventing this from happening. Along with how society is helping out with the prevention of poaching would be a good view to look at too. The politics surrounding poaching and wildlife protection is also a question to consider.
