In the past few weeks, we’ve seen the escalation of the global Coronavirus pandemic causing widespread social disruption and economic slowdown across the globe. The origins of the virus are thought to be linked to the illegal wildlife trade in China.
Although this current scenario is somewhat unique, it reminds us that all forms of trafficking, whether wildlife, drugs or human, can have a wide-ranging and enormously negative human and financial cost on our society.
