North America is pivotal in the illegal wildlife trade. It’s home to species that are valued around the world and acquired through clandestine networks that can decimate local populations. It also drives the demand for wildlife and wildlife products smuggled illegally from across the globe. In the November/December issue of The Wildlife Professional, our cover story looks how wildlife professionals are grappling with the illegal wildlife trade and the effects it is having on wildlife at home and around the world. Other articles focus in on the illegal turtle trade, explore a long-running Weddell seal research program in Antarctica, consider approaches to deal with Canada geese, weigh the high cost of combating chronic wasting disease, examine the role cover crops can play for wildlife and consider the importance of time in the field to become expert field researchers.
