Global Wildlife Seizures

Global Wildlife Seizures

Endangered flora and fauna are irresponsibly traded all in the name of greed. Illegal wildlife trade is a global issue that must be stopped as it has tremendous consequences, namely the destruction of ecosystems, possible extinction of endangered species, and the decline in biodiversity, among other effects. The figures shown in this infographic are taken from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (2016) which gives a good picture of global illegal wildlife trade. The global hotspots for wildlife seizures are those in the darkest shade of blue, and include countries in North America, Europe, and Asia. Different types of wildlife species are included in the list. The infographic shows woodlands in brown, land animals in orange, marine life in blue, and birds in green.
