Global fight against illegal wildlife poaching, does that mean that there is legal poaching going on?

so awful in many ways, but as I ask every time......two things....1. we threaten a lot of military action, do we do anything to engage these persons/groups in a peaceful way....2. what are we doing to combat global poverty so that people don't see poaching as "the way" to having wealth/security........

There is no way to stop poaching, however, the sustained killing of poachers has shown promise in the nations it has been sanctioned in.

Did "top military officals and diplomats" suddenly come out of a coma?

I've read this before. Another good reason to execute those that participate in wildlife poaching or anyone who is caught with any parts of the these animals.

I didn't know that there was difference between the legal and illegal poaching. But finally is always the same, who has the power continue to discuss and make claims, animals continue to die.

On one end, you have the poor local tribesman with no job who just needs the money. On the other, you have the organised criminal gangs." -- Andrea Crosta, Organized crime is in everything where money can be made. I would like to see a United Nations Force to combat this horrific problem.
Thank You Cher.
