Re: “House Votes to Protect Elephants and Rhinos

I concur with Ashley. Yes, wildlife terrorism has been going on for sometime since 2004. Many research, including that of Interpol and our own intelligence community, has found that poaching is a big part of an intricate web of black market commerce that is now funding terrorism through many groups of militia, rebels, and ultimately the big ones like Da'esh and al-Qa'eda. Wildlife trade drives up corruption, poverty, human trafficking, narcotics, and other transnational crimes; not just wildlife crime. This issue is the same throughout the world which affects us all, that wildlife trade funds terrorism. I must confess that the concept is too big to wrap our heads around it so I just refer to it as wildlife terrorism since it terrorizes both wildlife and people worldwide.
