In marketplaces across the world the illegal wildlife trade is booming, and enormous, irreparable damage to biodiversity is occurring. Hundreds of thousands of endangered and legally protected plants, insects and animals are harvested and traded every day to consumers interested in their medical, ornamental, cultural properties, or to keep them as live pets or plants.

The marketplaces for illegal wildlife products are increasingly virtual and there is an important shift to the marketing and sale of environmental commodities on the internet. As the ‘online’ aspect of the illegal wildlife trade grows in importance, they will bring together journalists from Africa and Asia to attend this workshop aimed to enable journalists to tell the story of the illegal online wildlife trade.
