Trading to Extinction
Narrated by Hugh Sykes
The wildlife business is booming. Consignments wing their way from the far corners of the world -parrots, tortoises, ivory, crocodile bags, snakeskin belts, fur coats-the list is endless. But supplies are dwindling. Two million crocodiles, half-a-million spotted and striped cats, and 300,000 marine turtles are despatched each year. How much longer can this level of cropping be sustained?
With large profits at stake, poachers and smugglers compete for a slice of this lucrative market. Attempts to crack down on their illicit activity are being stepped up, but they are often one jump ahead.
Can this business be controlled? Over-exploitation is a real threat. Many of our most colourful birds, animals and plants are at risk. New legislation is being drafted, but can we enforce these international safeguards? Will the list of endangered species grow ever longer?
