$8bn a year traded from illegal poaching

Glyn Davies, WWF director of programmes, warns of the scale of the illegal poaching of wild animals.

More than $8 billion a year is traded from the illegal poaching of wild animals, the World Wildlife Foundation warned.

Glyn Davies, director of programmes, told ITV's Daybreak: "It's one of the big illegal trades alongside arms, drugs. It's over $8 billion a year traded in wildlife alone and we of course very much appreciate the princes support convening this meeting today."
