Economics play a huge part in illegal wildlife trade. When we understand how macroeconomics influence pricing and multi commodity ‘black market’ trade in illicit wildlife ‘products’- such as ivory and rhino horn, we have a better understand of how to shift our focus and efforts toward systematic wide shifts and change in combatting illegal wildlife crime and trade in wildlife and natural resources.

Join Eli Weiss this week with Ron Orenstein, participant and Observer at CITES since 1987, and author of eleven books on science and nature. There has been a lot of discussion on the outcome of COP 17-so I thought I would look to an expert source to get the best understanding of how we can move forward within the framework we have . In Part One We delve in to the intricacies of CITES, what it is, what it can do, what it can’t do what we can expect it to do!
After such tremendous shifts in 2016 from the IUCN, to CITES, and to the US Presidential election… Now What? Tune in with Eli Weiss on Our Wild World Talk Radio as we go back to 2012 and hold the cards to the future. Weâre on the razors edge of what we choose to implement good or bad.
After years of making a difference in fighting the Ivory Wars in Kenya, it has come to a culmination now. Â Eli Weiss and Our Wild World have covered the ongoing fate of Elephants and the battle conservationists around Africa have been dealing with. Â We have had many important and special guests in the world of Elephant conservation such as Nick Brandt, Nick Lynch, Johnny Rodrigues, Adam Roberts, and many more. Â This week we have Tim Gorski on the ground in Kenya for the Ivory Burn where they will burn 105 tons of Ivory. Â This is a very sad but detrimental necessity to stop the buying and selling Ivory and Rhino horns. Â Stay Tuned to our social for updates. Â Also please take some time and listen to our shows! Â There must be an awakening to what we are doing to not only Elephants and Rhinos but to countless species we are affecting around the world.
