Nearly 3,000 Wild Great Apes Stolen Each Year

3 posts in this topic

Almost 3,000 great apes are killed or captured in the wild each year because of rampant illegal trade, according to a new UN report released Monday that voiced fears for their survival.

More than 22,000 great apes are estimated to have been lost to the illicit trade between 2005 and 2011, according to the study by the UN Environment Program, which oversees the Great Apes Survival Partnership (Grasp).

I think this is a shame it just shows how greedy and uncaring people can be.

I believe those who are involved should be punished accordingly if ever caught. This sickens me. /:<
