Our task force is supporting the transport sector to break the chains between suppliers and consumers of illegal wildlife products. Earlier this week The #DukeofCambridge joined our second task force meeting.

Illegal wildlife trafficking - as with other cross-border criminal activities - piggybacks on the complex supply chains used for legal trade. We must urgently raise awareness of the poaching crisis across the transport industry, and identify tangible means for them to play a part in stopping the trade. Our long term hope is a universal zero-tolerance policy to the trade.

In 2014, 6.7 tons of African #pangolin scales were confiscated in Asia. In 2013, the number was just over 600KG.

Illegal trade in #pangolins has reached epic proportions. +Wildlife Alliance's #rangers work day and night, removing nets and rescuing them before it's too late.

As poachers target older #matriarchs for their large #tusks, a generation of young, orphaned African #elephants is growing up without guidance. The consequences can be deadly. During Tanzania’s drought of 1993, matriarchs that endured a similar event decades earlier knew where to lead their herds for food and water. Groups with matriarchs too young to remember the previous drought lost more than half of their calves that year.

The sight of babies in forests is among the most welcome signs that protection efforts are working. A #rhino mother is a very edgy animal - even the slightest provocation is likely to result in a charge. Image © P.S.Lahiri via +Sanctuary Asia
