Another battle lost due to corruption in the war against wildlife crime
The video is shaky having been secretly captured. But the image of the table full of polished ivory artifacts and the merchant sitting behind them is clear. “How much?” asks the undercover agent, holding up a small ivory bracelet. Following a brisk response, the merchant reaches out a hand weighed down by a flashy, gold watch... $80 is exchanged for the life of an elephant. NAFTALI HONIG reports.

Story
Introduction

I am employed in Ispra, Italy, by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission as a Senior Scientific Officer. After more than 10 years of work in the field of radioecology, mainly mapping radioactivity in the environment (137Cs, Radon), I joined in 2008 the Global Environment Monitoring Unit of the JRC where I coordinate the biodiversity related activities. I am currently working on setting up a Digital Observatory for Protected Areas (DOPA) at the global scale with a focus on Africa. I also work on a web service (eHabitat) for ecological forecasting.

In my spare time, I enjoy travelling and doing wildlife photography.
