Poaching

Most countries around the world have made laws to stop or limit hunting of endangered species. A treaty called, The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora has been signed by most countries. (CITES)

Though many animals are protected from hunting, it does not stop some people from hunting them illegally. This is called poaching. Poaching happens all over the world, because poachers can get a lot of money for their illegal game. They sell the horns, ivory, body parts, and skin of protected animals.

Conclusion...

Many people do not yet realize how big the impact on Earth's creatures really is! Poaching must stop and we must take a stand for the animals who cannot speak for themselves! Help stop illegal poaching before its too late!
