GRASP Webcast –The Illegal Trade in Great Apes

The illicit traffic in live great apes is an increasingly serious threat to chimpanzees, gorillas, and bonobos in Africa and orangutans in Asia, and a highly symbolic aspect of the global environmental crime estimated at $23 billion USD that threatens to drain natural resources and destabilize governments.
