It likely goes without saying, but, since this site is expressly about animal poaching, the focus is on animals and not on plants, which means there are not plant-poaching-specific news posts here. There are some articles on NAP that deal with both—just as there are agencies (like CITES) and organizations (like FFI) that address both plant & animal issues—but our mandate and express focus is on animal poaching only. (Conceivably, there’s no reason why a companion site to NAP couldn’t be created, one that would only address the poaching of plants. I believe such a site would serve a real purpose.)
Along a somewhat related train of thought, there are individuals who engage in the theft, relocation, and sale of very old, dead animal remains, most notably dinosaur-era bones. This has become a highly lucrative trade of late, and it clearly does deal directly with animal poaching of a sort (albeit long-dead, long-extinct animals). Although one of NAP’s key goals is to avert the possible extinction of extant animal species, I believe that’s where the similarity between animal poaching and the world of antiquities ends. As such, I cannot see any good, logical reason for posting news articles with this focus on this site. There is the connected topic of the “trophy animal” question and the taxidermy business, which both similarly deal with dead animals and animal parts in much the same manner as dinosaur-era bone trafficking does, but that’s perhaps best left to a separate, subsequent discussion/posting?
