Overview

* Regulation of the international trade in wildlife is failing: Why?
* How do we stop more and more plant and animal species from being endangered?
* Leading authorities in the field show why it is not working and what needs to be done
*
The regulation of the trade in wildlife is failing: increasing numbers of plant and animal species are threatened with extinction despite improvements in our understanding and the management of global trade. Understanding why, and what to do about it, is urgently needed.

This book provides a critical assessment of how the trade in wildlife is currently regulated and how those regulations are enforced. Through analysis of case studies and comparisons with the trade in other illegal goods, it shows what the weaknesses are, where the system is failing and what must be done if conservation efforts are to be supported by trade regulations, and not undermined.
