In this first episode of a short series, we explore the origins of poaching and the wildlife trade, and discuss the social and economic environments this illicit industry thrives in.

We also introduce a new segment in which Jonah shares a tip on sustainable living! The P word makes an inevitable cameo…plastic…the P word is plastic.
