With your submission, you are helping end illegal wildlife trade online! We will review the submission.
In the last few decades, the internet has become a thriving platform for the estimated $7-23 billion illegal
trade in wildlife and wildlife products. As governments and law enforcement crack down on physical wildlife
markets, particularly those in Asia and Africa, traditional shop and stall sellers have shifted their
operations to the relative anonymity of the web. With the click of a button, illegally killed wildlife and
their parts, such as pangolin scales, elephant ivory and live tiger cubs, are now bought and sold on consumer
websites and apps around the world – including in the US.
The rise in online trafficking has fueled an international poaching and trafficking crisis that jeopardizes
the survival of a broad range of terrestrial, marine, and avian species. Pangolins, scaly ground-dwellers
endemic to Asia and Africa, are particularly vulnerable to the online trade as they are the world’s most
trafficked mammal. An estimated one million pangolins have been snatched from the wild and trafficked in the
past decade—the equivalent of one every five minutes.
