The concluding chapter summarises the complicated nature of wildlife trafficking; from its pervasiveness to its hidden nature; from the supply side to the demand side; from the construction of victimhood to the construction of offending; from the conflicting perspectives of those fighting against it to the transnational collaborations. The book ends by reflecting upon what wildlife trafficking will look like in the coming years particularly focusing on its nature and extent in a world where most economies are struggling, most nations remain enmeshed in neo-liberal capitalist consumer policies, and the main victims of the trade—wildlife—remain an unheard voice in our multispecies societies.
