Wildlife Through The Mail & Postal Service?

Wildlife Through The Mail & Postal Service?

TRAFFIC - the wildlife trade monitoring network - have been working with Pos Malaysia for the past four years to help the postal service better detect wildlife in the mail, which is a massive problem worldwide, with people and businesses using mail and courier services to send live wild animals and their parts and products to customers. We speak to Renee Yee, a Training and Capacity Building Officer with TRAFFIC, to find out more about this illicit trade, and some of the crazy smuggling methods people use, but also how the training with the postal and courier services provided by TRAFFIC has helped tackle the illegal trade of wildlife.
