    Tarryn, to answer your question, it is because refugees and asylum seekers are of low priority and aren’t considered on anyone’s agenda. This country has greater issues to deal with; the senseless murder of millions of innocent animals every year is one of them.

    Why are there no notes on refugees and asylum seeker’s, although I believe they warrant their own section.

    The value of the illegal wildlife trade exceeds that of illegal drugs.
    I like the AJP’s focus on this and other sensible reforms. The 21st century demands new ways of business and ethics.
