Humanity faces a crucial moment to conserve the world's most iconic wildlife. Africa’s wildlife is being increasingly endangered for reasons such as climate change and illegal poaching.

Africa’s poaching crisis is mostly caused by organized crime syndicates who make profitable business by killing the animals and selling their body parts such as tusks and pelts.

We will talk about the poaching crisis, mostly funded by misinformed customers ready to pay big sums of money for animal parts that are erroneously assumed to have particular properties. We then look at Africa’s narco state, a country of nearly two million, which has become a transit hub for cocaine from Late America and how that has affected the lives of Bissau-Guineans.
