Environmental crime and wildlife smuggling are among the most profitable criminal activities in the world. They also pose a growing threat to the survival of endangered species. Investigations into the illegal trade in wildlife, animal exploitation, species loss, and environmental degradation often take months, sometimes years, and lead to different countries and continents. They use old-school methods, like undercover reporting, and inventive ways to catch their targets -- smugglers and poachers. Come hear Ying Chan of the new Pangolin Projects announce the results of their team's ten-country investigation; Natasha Daly on her groundbreaking work on wildlife smugglers for National Geographic; and Mark Schapiro on tips from 30 years of covering environmental crime.
