THE ONGOING TRADE THREATENING TIGERS, PANGOLINS, SONGBIRDS AND SHARKS REVEALED IN LATEST TRAFFIC BULLETIN

Traffic reported on 2nd May that declining populations of sharks and rays, the threats posed by the anonymity afforded to traffickers online and the continuing crisis facing Asian songbirds are among the topics covered in the latest issue of the TRAFFIC Bulletin.  Now in its 4th decade, the Bulletin remains the only conservation journal dedicated exclusively to wildlife trade, featuring reports, analysis and insights into the world’s most pressing wildlife trade-related topics by specialists in their field.  High on the list of concerns facing conservationists and law enforcement agencies alike are the challenges posed by the increasing volume of illegal wildlife trade shifting to online platforms.
