The purpose of the Bush Warriors organization is to create global awareness about the plight of the world’s wildlife and biodiversity. Many human activities are responsible for species declines around the globe. Exploding human demand for animals and their body parts is fueling some of the most horrific, inhumane, exploitative crimes against wildlife— poaching, bushmeat trade, exotic animal trade, and so much more. Some of the world’s most popular animals— elephants, rhinos, tigers, lions, dolphins, bears, and more— are on the brink of extinction because of this. At the current poaching rate these species are expected to permanently disappear from their natural habitat within the next 20-50 years. Some, such as central African elephants, could be gone in less than three years.
