We are in the midst of a crisis. The criminal exploitation of nature -- the illegal killing, capture, and trade of wild species -- has escalated to the point where it could undo generations of conservation efforts.
Scientific advancements, innovative technologies, and strengthened policy initiatives have the potential to turn the tide against the organized crime syndicates pushing many of our most iconic species toward extinction and putting local communities at risk.
Global leaders will share their insights on the growing crisis of wildlife crime at the 2012 Fuller Symposium. The symposium will be held on November 14, 2012 at the National Geographic Society in Washington, DC and will be broadcast live on the web.
