Hard drugs, ruthless local gangs, and international crime syndicates are at the heart of a poaching crisis in South Africa. The prize? A slow-growing marine mollusc.
Abalone poaching is turning the coastline into a graveyard of empty shells and sucking already-desperate fishing communities into a violent underground economy. You can help us expose wildlife crimes like this, and protect people and wildlife from ruthless criminal syndicates.
