The Amazonians Wealth Coming Those Killing It
The Amazonian jungle is widely known as a safe haven for the widest variety of species, stretching out to 2,000 animals across the border. In a place so bountiful with species richness, there comes destruction from people looking for profit. The Illegal wildlife trade has become so big that the law and actions being taken to hinder those who participate in the trading of these animals meat, skin, and niche parts of body, has become a lot harder to tackle in each country. More and more of the regions that are affected by the trading, specifically South America and East Asia, have spoken out on what they will be doing with the law enforcement to combat these issues to prevent the endangerment of these ecosystems. Since these geographical areas are the ones being taken over by this epidemic, it is most paramount for their laws to be the most punishable. There is a decent amount of profitable income for these poachers, hunters, traders, and farmers, that have made the trading more excessive because of the return they get back for the killing of the species.
Besides the simple fact that the illegal wildlife trade has largely affected the ecosystems in the rainforest, there has been a large finding of infectious diseases through these animals being traded through cities. The pathogens that they’ve found have also shown up in the human body as well. Scientists studying the Amazon and the illegal wildlife trade have found this almost as an advantage in the scientific community. If they are able to get the attention of people involved by revealing the risk of their own health, it will increase the chances of the traders willing to step back for the sake of themselves. The organizations being formed across the countries have been working to recognize the people who participate the acts as criminals. The parts of the illegal wildlife trade that have been exposed have shed a light on animal abuse and the need to save these creatures and the habitats that these people are affecting by taking keystone species away. This needs to be treated as a criminal felony for those involved because of the termination of wildlife that poachers and traders are submerging themselves into.
