Southeast Asia: At the heart of wildlife trade

A report released by wildlife trade monitoring organisation Traffic has concluded that a new strategy is urgently needed to curb wildlife trafficking in southeast Asia, one of the world’s biggest biodiversity hotspots. The report, titled Southeast Asia: At the heart of wildlife trade, has detailed how organised criminal networks aided by wildlife cybercrime, inadequate laws and dismal conviction rates are allowing illegal trade to flourish. We find out more about the report, and what needs to be done to curb 'jaw-dropping' wildlife trafficking in southeast Asia, from Elizabeth John, the Senior Communications Officer at TRAFFIC Southeast Asia.
