Episode 23 – Wildlife Poaching

In this episode, Bo, Victoria, and Katie tackle the controversial topic of illegal wildlife hunting, or ‘poaching’, and equally controversial efforts to combat it through increased militarization of protection efforts, including ‘shoot-to-kill’ policies.  They approach the topic from a variety of angles, looking at history of the term ‘poaching’, changing attitudes to hunting over time, the role of social media, and the variety of ways  governments and organizations have tried to combat illegal practices.
