The level of concern is such that the UN is now calling for “each country to prohibit, under national law, the possession of wildlife that was illegally harvested in, or illegally traded from, anywhere else in the world.”

something must be done especially since there are 50% fewer wildlife than in 1970

This is a great UN initiative, we can only hope that more countries legislate internally on the prohibition of illegal wildlife trade to encourage their neighbors to do the same and start a chain reaction. It's a great first step.

as usual the UN is calling for action and no one cares (we have seen that with the three UN resolutions against the Chinese occupation of Tibet since 1950)

what happens to the beast will happen to man because we are all connected. I read there are 50% fewer wild animals on this earth than there was in 1970.

Did the UN get a petition from Care2 to do what they should have done on the first day they opened ? Maybe someone stuck a horn up their collective butts. I wish they would move to the Sudan.

We let them live free rent to do nothing but stir the cauldron occasionally. The UN has no sense of Justice, Integrity, character, scruples, principles, strength or values. They are part of the problem. They have become irrelevant.

The question remains, does anybody actually listen to the UN???
