    The only solution is to farm in order to produce this products. It will no longer be Illigal. Now the jealousy is gonna crept in once the profits starts pouring in. That’s the reason why this problem will never stop and that’s economics.

    😢🌺🏵 Sad part is some of those plants are being saved buy plant poachers. I talked to an Orchid poacher years ago and he told me he would be climbing tree's and cliff's in arias where legal LOGGING was going on and taking the orchids he fined and selling them on the black market to people who will take proper care of them in turn saving that specific endangered species. So I guess not all poachers are all bad...

    Trouble with this is that by the time these smuggled goods are found, the elephants, sharks, pangolins etc have all been killed-more needs to be done to stop the killers 😡

    Si permiten cometer esta clase de actos perversos las autoridades permiten repetirlas jamás se logrará respeto, responsabilidad, compromiso, todo seguirá igual,llorando sobre la leche derramada. La suerte de los animales depende de la acción humana existen leyes, normas, principios ,pues, hay que cumplir , de lo contrario a quejarnos , a lamentarnos , por incapacidad para hacer el trabajo a cabalidad, mientras tanto la fauna se extingue, la situación empeora y la humanidad se paraliza a falta de valor, de creatividad, de fuerza para realizar actos heróicos si fuera el caso. Gracias.

    The problem is stupid unreasonable people, people that believe in the ridiculous notion that these items have healing properties, people that demand ornamentation for their homes or their person, people are so very selfish.

    This is just one months haul, imagine the size of the trade in a year, it is more profitable than the drug trade, so profitable that some drug traders, have gone to trading in animals, because it is not so dangerous and the profits are greater, the penalties are not so severe. I know an awful lot goes to China for traditional medicine, but there are other countries with traditional medicines, that take a lot of these things. This is just part of the problem, the trade in live animals, is doing just as much damage, the live animals are going to private collectors, and the illegal pet trade, and is decimating the bio diversity of so many areas of the world. I know so many of these animals are so cute, but it is helping to lead to the extinction of these animals in the wild. America is one of the first destinations of the illegal pet trade, then animals can be set free when they are no longer amusing or too big, causing problems for the local fauna. Please do not have exotic pets, and do not believe that they are bred legally.
