Sunset for Elephants and Rhinos in the Wild?: Illegal Trafficking, Inadequate Enforcement and Lack of Political Will
Extinction is imminent for wild elephants and rhinos due to a confluence of uncontrolled poaching, illegal wildlife trafficking, consumer demand, and the inadequate reach and enforcement of conservation laws. A panel will discuss these issues, including the CITES treaty, relevant U.S. laws and the potential impact of the US State Department’s new four-part strategy to strengthen and expand enforcement.
