Summary
"It's estimated that wildlife trafficking is worth ten billion US dollars a year on the world?s black market. Profits gained from this illicit trade are thought to be second only to that of drug and gun smuggling. Often run by organised crime and terrorist groups, including Columbian drug cartels, the Russian mafia, Chinese Triad gangs, and even al-Queda, more than 17,000 illegal wildlife imports and exports have been seized by the Australian government alone. -- Locusts are one of the major insect pests in the world ? invading vast areas of the globe at blistering speeds, demolishing crops as they go.Amazingly, these hungry little insects can start out as shy, harmless creatures before suddenly forming mighty armies in search of a substance essential to life ? protein.And, as Maryanne Demasi finds out, these rabid protein seekers are teaching us a lot about human obesity. -- Pretty soon, you?ll be able to buy underwear that deodorises, shirts that send messages from your mobile and charge your MP3 ? you?ll even be able to purchase an invisibility coat! -- Dr Michelle Gerke and her team at the University of Sydney are studying something all of us try very hard to avoid ? pain" -- edited from website
