New UN campaign shines light on illicit wildlife trade

Updated 25 November 2013, 13:54 AEDT

Young Asians are the focus of a new campaign to highlight the illicit trade of wildlife.

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime has released a new public service announcement, delivered by well-known Chinese actress Li Bingbing.

But unlike previous campaigns where conservation was the focus, the message is now concerned with security and the criminal gangs involved.

Presenter: Tom Maddocks

Speaker: Li Bingbing, Chinese actress and UN ambassador; Giovanni Broussard, UNODC officer, based in South East Asia, following environmental crime, organised crime and border control
