Abstract

This book is a unique analysis of the global illegal wildlife trade, a black market that is threatening the survival of numerous species. It begins with essential background information into the scale and scope of the smuggling of animals and plants bringing to light the often unknown magnitude of this black market. This leads to an evaluation of the reasons behind wildlife trafficking by exploring the demand for wildlife. The threats posed to the environment, people and the economy are detailed before an in-depth exploration takes place of who the victims and offenders are of this green crime. The interdisciplinary stakeholders involved in fighting wildlife trafficking are detailed as are the collaborative efforts that they are engaged in to end this black market. The book ends with a look to the future of the illegal wildlife trade and the chances of survival for those species targeted for human consumption.
