Poaching: A Serious Threat to Wildlife

The Illegal Wildlife Trade

Poaching, the illegal hunting of wild animals, is a serious threat to wildlife around the world. The illegal wildlife trade is a multi-billion dollar industry, and it is driving many species to the brink of extinction.

The Impact of Poaching

Poaching has a devastating impact on wildlife populations. In the last decade alone, 9,415 African rhinos have been lost to poaching. Elephant poaching rates vary across Africa, but data from 64 sites shows that poaching has been increasing steadily for the past 19 years.
