Film: Breaking Their Silence-Women on the Frontline of the Poaching War

John Jay College of Criminal Justice 524 W. 59th Street, New York, NJ

The sordid world of wildlife trafficking and poaching is orchestrated by ruthless crime syndicates raking in revenues well in excess of $20 billion. It’s the 4th most profitable illegal enterprise behind drugs, guns and human trafficking and has now been proven to fund global terrorism.

Filmmaker, Kerry David, and her dedicated crew, pursue a passion that takes them around the globe to meet an unlikely group of heroes who are rising up to do all they can to prevent and reverse these terrible offenses against our planet’s most vulnerable animals.
