Poaching is at all time highs and the world’s wildlife is being decimated. On average, up to 1000 elephants per day are being slaughtered for their tusks, lions and tigers face extinction in the wild, and rhino poaching has gone up by over 5000% in the last few years. We’re lobbying for world leader’s of the richest nations to do more.
We know that large scale poaching is much more than it used to be – it’s no longer local people with primitive weaponry. It is organised, large scale criminal gangs controlling poaching and it is now officially recognised that the illegal wildlife trade is worth around $20b per year – second only to drugs. We know that where there are criminal gangs of this scale, money feeds back into these gangs and the criminal underworld. Poaching currently destroys livelihoods, tears apart communities, and helps fund civil wars and warlords across Africa and beyond. The stakes have changed and the way that the international governments assist needs to change to. Please download our letter and send or email it to William Hague on:
