Description

This book examines trade and trafficking in endangered animal species. While the focus is on illegal trafficking, its wider aim is to discuss the harmful aspects of the trade and trafficking which is taking place in concordance with laws and regulations. Drawing on the findings of empirical research from Norway, the study discusses how this global, transnational trend is increasingly putting large numbers of non-human species at risk. It also explores the motives driving the trade, and the consequences in terms of animal abuse and environmental harm. The book discusses whether internationally agreed measures, such as international conventions, actually help prevent the trade. Various possible options are considered including a total ban. The work draws on a green criminology theoretical framework to provide a more philosophical perspective on concepts such as harm, animal rights, species justice, ecological justice, ecological citizenship, environmental rights and speciesism.
