Stolen Wildlife Exhibition

As a tool for bringing the issue of the illegal wildlife trade and individual topics of Stolen Wildlife closer to the general public serves the Stolen Wildlife Exhibition by the photographer Lucie Čižmářová. Each panel consists of a photograph highlighting one of many issues of the illegal trade in wild animals and their body parts, including the estimated extent of the problem. An interesting fact is that all the animal specimens and body parts in the photographs, such as ivory, rhino horns, big cat furs, pangolin scales, etc., have been confiscated by control authorities in the Czech Republic.

Cuddled to Death - Wild animals are not attractions

Travels to exotic destinations can bring, among many other experiences, encounters with wild animals, which are offered as a paid attraction for the entertainment of travelers. Thus, by taking a photo with them, tourists often unconsciously become supporters of the illegal trade in often endangered species of animals that come into the hands of street traders. A new unique photo of the Kukang Rescue Program now draws attention to this topic. This organization, as part of its campaign "I Am Not Your Toy!" aims against such use of slow lorises and other wild animals popularization on social networks and the Internet.
