Iris Ho: New Big 5 podcast

Iris Ho is a senior specialist in Programs and Policy with the Humane Society International and an expert in the illegal wildlife trade.

The illegal trade in wildlife products, from ivory and rhino horn to pangolin scales and meat, is driving animal species rapidly towards extinction. Ho describes it as “the illegal wildlife trade is the conservation crisis of our generation.”



In this podcast, we talk about the illegal wildlife trade’s links with drugs, guns and human trafficking, the scale of the industry, the ivory trade, rhino horn, pangolins and more. As well as the trade in China and across Asia, we also look at the illegal and legal wildlife trade in the United States, UK and across Europe, which is also pushing animals, such as amphibians and reptiles, towards extinction.
