Tracing Poacher Hunters In The Congo



You probably already know about the devastating poaching trade in the Congo, but Environmental Graffiti has a great slideshow presenting a fascinating look at the tale from an entirely new point of view -that of the park rangers fighting the poachers on a day to day basis. Their jobs are deadly and the pay is practically nothing, but their love of animals keeps them working to stop the slaughter. Be warned, many of the images are extremely graphic.

The battle against abalone poaching here on the west coast is actually quite violent and dangerous as well. These, often overlooked, public servants have my respect.

Yes, it's a sin and a waste, but in the 2nd poorest nation on the planet, where human remains lie on highways as road kill, poaching is the absolute least of their problems.
