[Webinar] U.S. and the Global Trade in Wildlife - February 5, 2016

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

To enhance understanding of the potential health and security risks associated with global trade in wildlife and characterize the participation of the US in such trade, EcoHealth Alliance (www.ecohealthalliance.org) has been collecting data and analyzing global wildlife trade (GWT) over the past decade. GWT involves international trade of billions of individual animals and their products through a range of market chains that vary in source, trader and consumer identity, geographical pathway of movement, as well as purpose and legality. This presentation will cover information gathered through the above described efforts and briefly address potential associated concerns.
