The National Police have deployed their rapid reaction brigade (SPORC) to hunt down members of syndicates involved in the trade and collection of endangered species in the country, following the arrests in Jakarta last week of five such traders.

I am glad to see they are doing something about this. Just lock them up and throw away the key.

If people would not buy these products there would be no market. I have often wondered about people who proudly wear the skins of animals facing extinction.

Thanks Tom

Thnx Tom. Hopefully this will be a step towards helping a lot of these animals. People who trade in the slaughter of animals or wear the skins of such creatures should be skinned themselves.
