The Signal

Killing people to save animals

March 6, 2019

There's a bloody, decades-old war raging all over the world right now, and you've probably never heard of it. The ferocity of that fight has landed the conservation group ,WWF, best known for their cute panda logo and earnest ad campaigns, in a lot of trouble. In a story published yesterday, Buzzfeed alleges that individuals and groups working with and for WWF in several countries have maimed, tortured and murdered, in an attempt to protect wildlife. And there's plenty of evidence that rangers themselves routinely suffer the same kind of violence. Today on the Signal, we visit the war that's waged in the name of conservation, through the eyes of someone who’s been on the front lines.
