The Scale of the Net Zero Challenge

The price of meeting net zero is estimated to be between $100-150 trillion over the next 30 years. Regardless of this cost, we need to reach net zero before climate change does irreversible damage to the environment and the economy.

Wildlife trafficking has many causes - from local opposition to lack of education and law enforcement. These are surmountable problems but will require global education and empowerment. This is coming at a crucial time, with the looming climate and biodiversity crisis. Poaching is becoming unsustainable and the people in charge of protection, park rangers, are risking their own murder in the line of duty.

Summary
What are the root causes of wildlife trafficking? 
1. The locals were kicked out once the areas were designated as protected. And this means that they will act in bitterness to overturn conservation efforts. Empowering the local community is vital to help conservation. 

2. There is a lack of education worldwide about wildlife trafficking. It is especially important for government officials, court officials, researchers and the wider world to acknowledge that there is a problem. 

3. There is a lack of law enforcement. 

Why is poaching unsustainable? 
Poaching is one of the worst forms of resource depletion. Once an animal has been killed, you have eliminated the chance of that animal continuing its lineage and eventually poachers will have nothing left to exploit. 

What are the problems that park rangers face? 
Being a park ranger is a hugely dangerous job, with park rangers being murdered in the line of duty just for protecting the local wildlife and biodiversity. And this comes at a crucial time where protecting wildlife is of the utmost importance.
