Born Free urging nations to take this threat seriously
February 2013. The Born Free Foundation, the international wildlife charity, has warned that we are presiding over a terminal slide to extinction for many of the world's most iconic species. 

"It's like we are living in a nightmare" said Will Travers OBE, CEO Born Free Foundation "The images we see in wildlife documentaries can lull us all too often into a false sense of security. We are led to believe that the natural world is holding its own. In fact, it is being beaten to a bloody pulp."

"The situation is now so bad, the poaching and slaughter of wildlife now so inextricably linked to international organised crime syndicates, that without a dramatic step-change in our efforts and without the resources for effective species conservation, we shall, in my view, end up with a handful of ‘wildlife fortresses' - heavily guarded National Reserves and Parks, protected by garrisons of armed rangers and wardens - and that's it." Travers continued.
