10 Billion dollars!
This is the estimated value calculated by WWF that poachers of wild animals and their parts are going to win this year.
Tens and thousands of elephants will succumb, especially in central Africa, where 50% of them died in less than 20 years. Nearly 10 tons of illegal rhino horns reach Asian markets, competing with the price of gold bars. The 3200 survival Tigers will be persecuted and a lot of them are going to be captured to be sold as parts in the same Asian market.
The balance is terrifying: How humans chase larger animals, more charismatic, and convert them into money in the illicit market of super crowded cities. It's unbelievable!
