It's truly frightening what's happening to this planet and ALL it's creatures..in the name of human greed.

How is it that every country has the power and the will to go to war, and none will protect their own best resources? I could say that it is just not profitable enough to supply proper protection, that of course would be very cynical of me.

Noted and this great article read in sadness for all great apes, monkeys and orangutans. It is very sickening what humans are doing to all great beasts, birds and the ocean going mammals.
Thank You Cher.

Impose the mandatory death penalty globally to all poachers, hunters and those associated with the murder of animals in the trade

We need our armies out there to protect animals. Shoot these humans to kill. They are worthless.

The problem is clear, how to try to eleviate the problem to an extent is also clear. The two just can't seem to get together.

These animals need better protected in the wild and the people who poach them for any reason must be dealt with appropriately.

It is sickening to see the demise of our wilg life just for the purpose of greed and the $$$$. I guess when Asia is finished with this planet, there will only be cockroaches left. and only because they multiply quicker than Asians..
