Number of Animals Rescued from Traffickers in Thailand

Between 2010 to 2013, environmental protection officers in Thailand seized over 46,000 animals that were being held by wildlife traffickers, venders and trappers. The number during the two year period is higher than the 18,000 animals that were rescued in the 2008 to 2010 time-period.
