Poacher is those who shoot protected species, those who hunt in times or in prohibited areas or with prohibited methods and means, those who illegally capture protected birds (and other animals). Worldwide, 6 million birds are slaughtered every week, all illegally. These species are real 'living targets' for poachers and traffickers. Poaching inevitably causes the impoverishment of ecosystems around the world and has brought several species of birds to the brink of extinction.
