Halting the illegal trade of CITES species from World Heritage Sites

WWF's report Halting the illegal trade of CITES species from World Heritage Sites, finds that poaching occurs in almost 30% of World Heritage Sites where one third of the world's remaining wild tigers and 40% of all African animals live. These unique sites are also the last refuge for some critically endangered species such as Javan rhinos in Indonesia and vaquitas in Mexico.
