The illicit trade in wild animals - hunted as part of the trade in pets, food, ornaments, fashion and traditional medicine - is cruel and corrupt. Protected By Law? is a hard-hitting resource for key stage 3 citizenship that supplies basic facts and asks awkward but necessary questions. It puts pupils in the position of UK customs officials, African community leaders and animals rights campaigners, and invites them to consider the ethics and economics of eating monkeys, selling ivory souvenirs and clearing forests. The accompanying video is painful but very informative. To obtain Protected By Law? write to Bushmeat Pack, IFAW, 87-90 Albert Embankment, London SE1 7UD.
