Wildlife conservation and environmental economics

  • Kirk Hamilton (a1)

Conserving wildlife has been much in the news in early 2014, owing to the rapid growth of wildlife crime since 2000. This is now a problem measured in tens of billions of dollars, with large, organized and violent criminal activity pushing rhinos towards extinction, and losses of African elephants measured in the thousands per year. Tigers, lions and other top predators are under severe pressure as well.
