The Consumer Drives the Market

I just finished reading the book: DEFENDING OUR WILDLIFE HERITAGE, The Life and Times of a Special Agent, author: Terry Grosz.
I saw him speak at a Trout Unlimited meeting (Fall 2014). He is a seasoned author and retired U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service agent. When he went to Asia in the 1990's to communicate with other countries about the illegal (in the U.S. and many other countries, usually overlooked by the Asian countries) trafficking of animals and their parts, he was met with skepticism. We see and hear about this all the time. Elephants being killed by poachers by the thousands for their ivory. Tigers poached for their pelts, rhinos killed for their tusks (for Asian consumers), and on and on.....
This should be enough to infuriate most reasonable people...activate and mobilize. Speak with your wallet and your voice.
