Noted, thank you. BUT as Michela mentioned, China is one of, if not THE biggest consumer of endangered animals. They have a thriving black market for highly endangered species, including rhinos, tigers and sharks, and are known to also smuggle large amounts of elephant ivory and engage in bear bile farming.
