[Extract] The recent Hanoi Conference on Illegal Wildlife Trade (16 to 18 November 2016) has further highlighted the extent to which Southeast Asia's wildlife is facing an extinction crisis driven by unsustainable levels of commercial hunting (1). This threat affects species both outside and within protected areas and is driving the extinction of some of the planet's most distinctive and imperiled mammals, including the saola (Pseudoryx nghetinhensis) and tiger (Panthera tigris), while also decimating populations of many "common" terrestrial mammals (2).
