Cranes are Crying against criminals Killing fields for migratory birds in Dera Ghazi Khan.
Extinction Trade: Endangered animals are the new blood diamonds as militias and warlords use poaching to fund death.
Editorial in DAWN:
PAKISTAN needs to study the case of Salman Khan. The Indian actor was arrested and charged with seven years’ imprisonment for hunting the black buck, a serious criminal offence in India. His case has shown that no matter how popular or influential a person is, he/she is not above the law. This message needs to be sent to Pakistan too where, despite well-intentioned laws that prohibit hunting endangered species, or limit the number of game that can be poached, every rule is openly defied – and how.
