Ivan Carter will be in Singapore to share personal stories about the global crisis facing illegal wildlife trade and the action needed to stop this trade. Illegal wildlife trade is the world’s fourth largest illegal trade after drugs, human trafficking and counterfeiting and is a multibillion-dollar global business.

Asia plays a notorious role in illegal wildlife trade, with Southeast Asia as trade hotspot. In a year, as many as 2 million live animals and 8,000 dead animals and their parts may be traded throughout Southeast Asia. Yet, only slightly over 200 arrests are made in just one year. Urgent action is needed to put a stop to the trade and protect iconic species like rhinos, elephants and tigers.

Through Carter’s W.A.R., Outdoor Channel has partnered WWF to call for people across 16 countries in Asia to take action on illegal wildlife trade Outdoor Channel Asia will also donate funding to support WWF’s work in illegal wildlife trade.In addition, venue partner Holiday Inn Express Clarke Quay will contribute S$20,000 to WWF’s wildlife conservation work through its Save The Hippos campaign.
