December 4 – Wildlife Conservation Day

Posted on December 4, 2013

Do you know what wildlife crime is?

It is the capture or killing of protected wildlife. From capturing a wild parrot in Brazil to be sold as a pet, to killing an African rhinoceros for its horn—from hunting an African elephant for a trophy on a wall to netting endangered leatherback sea turtles for meat—poaching is a worldwide problem.

Today we are urged to take a wildlife pledge  and join in the fight against wildlife crimes.

What do you think of decorating a house with big-game trophies such as the heads and tusks seen here?
It's important to arrest poachers when
officials discover evidence like this, but
it's even better to stop them before they kill!
