As the poaching epidemic that has gripped the planet increases at an alarming rate, more awareness needs to be raised about how critical the situation is on the ground.
However, in a day and age when news and information can be transmitted so quickly, across so many different formats, there is potential for stories to become distorted or misreported. It is therefore the aim of the IAPF to get the correct facts to the right people, which allow them to report accurately on the situation.
The key to winning this war is awareness. The media is one of the best tools that the conservation community has in it arsenal.
Here are some of the latest articles about the IAPF’s activities. I urge you to share these with you friends so we can involve more people in the struggle.
