Infiltrating the Illegal Wildlife Trade: A Trafficker’s Downfall

Most people can name at least one organized-crime figure, but if you ask them to name a wildlife trafficker, the majority come up short. Investigative reporter Bryan Christy wants to change this by putting a face to the crime so that wildlife trafficking is treated like narcotics trafficking or any other organized crime. With the support of National Geographic, Christy goes after one of the most sought-after international wildlife traffickers, Anson Wong—and the publicity Christy gives Wong eventually aids in the trafficker's downfall.
