Poaching and its Consequences for Development and Security

Illegal poaching and trade of wildlife is a massive problem for developing countries, particularly those in Asia. Often these products find their way across boarders—stuffed into suitcases, packed into trucks, and occasionally carried. Protected and endangered species are killed and sold for their organs, flesh, bones, skin, and scales, which are turned into tonics, ornaments, meat, and traditional medicines.

 

Of course this is an environmental problem. Many of these animals are endangered or protected. Of all the illegal wildlife product seizures in Australia last year, two-thirds were traditional medicines containing ingredients from endangered species. But this is also a development problem and a security one, too.

 

Global Financial Integrity (GFI) has estimated that the illegal trade in wildlife, excluding fishing, among residents of developing countries generates about US$8-10 billion annually.

Human poaching threatens successful 2012 turtle nesting

Human poaching threatens successful 2012 turtle nesting | The Wild Planet | Scoop.it

“At one time all of Ambergris Caye was known to be a nesting beach for turtles in Belize but now turtles are confined to smaller beaches due to the rapid development,” explained Foreman. In the past only two types of turtle have been documented to nest on the northern beaches of Ambergris Caye, the loggerhead turtle (Chleonia Caretta) and the green turtle (Chleonia Mydas). This year is the first time in the four years of monitoring that Hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) nests were found on northern Ambergris Caye. “For the first time in the four years that we are doing this monitoring, we found two hawksbill turtle nests and the eggs have hatched,” said the marine biologist. Hawksbill turtles are listed as a critically endangered species under the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
