NPR Story on Southeast Asia's Illegal Wildlife Trade
I found an archive of a three part National Public Radio series on Southeast Asia's wildlife trade. The series is worth a listen for a brief overview of the challenge of protecting wildlife in the region. Part 2 describes a market in Burma, just over the Thai border, that is notorious for selling illegal wildlife parts. The reporter encountered clouded leopard skins being sold openly by several vendors.
