London's Wildlife Crime

Met. Police Operation Charm posterThe Met. Police has launched a major campaign - Operation Charm - against Chinese "medicines" which include ingredients from endangered wildlife species, such as tiger bone, rhino horn, bear bile and musk. The sale of these products is illegal in the UK. As "medicine" they are useless, but idiots buy them. Sadly, London has become a major importer of illegal wildlife products. It isn't just Chinese "medicines": fur coats made from endangered species, such as tigers, shaving brushes with ivory handles and so on. The punchy poster for this new campaign shows a dead tiger in a pool of blood outside the National Gallery, London. Click the title link for more information and wildlife news.
