Animal Black Market

Web trade threat to rare species


Ifaw says one site offered two-week-old tiger cubs for $1,500


The illegal trade in wild animal products over the internet is driving the world's most endangered species to extinction, wildlife campaigners claim.


An International Fund for Animal Welfare (Ifaw) probe found 9,000 live animals or products for sale in one week on trading sites like eBay.

Ifaw claims many traders are taking advantage of the internet's anonymity. The UK Government says it takes wildlife crime seriously, but Ifaw urged it to act urgently. During a three month investigation, Ifaw found some of the world's most endangered species for sale online - almost all being traded illegally.
