We are rapidly losing major keystone species such as elephant and rhino to a trade facilitated by criminalized syndicates. Unfortunately the levels of international unrest and wider economic crisis have eclipsed the need for greater awareness and

The poachers are already risking death, so I believe it will take much more than higher penalties to stop this blood trade.

The poachers risk death - it is the syndicates and dealers and the ultimate market that needs dealing with. Personally I would be more than happy if the whole lot of them got the death penalty. Every person involved in this massacre of these iconic animals deserves the death penalty. They are all greedy callous creeps without brains.

The only way to stop poaching is to make it high risk low reward. Higher penalties are one step in that direction.

Signed,thanks. Poaching of animals is an epidemic. Global efforts from all governmments is needed ASAP.I'm not certain these poachers can ever be stopped but i'd like to think something can be done about it. Why not start with" shoot to kill" and or a 15-20 minimum sentence??? Even if tougher measures are finally put forth it may already be to late for many of these fabulous animals. Greed,ignorance and a lack of feeling is killing mankind
