Illegal wildlife trade totals billions of dollars a year globally, but conservationists say the problem is most acute in Southeast Asia. Despite international and local laws designed to crack down on the trade, live animals and animal parts -- often those of endangered or threatened species -- are sold in open-air markets throughout the region.

The majority of the illegal wildlife trade occurs in Bangkok. While Thailand is making some effort to combat the illegal trade of endangered species, they have the laws on the books that could easily be rectified to change this dire situation in Thailand.
