Wildlife Detectives: The Poaching of Puget Sound

Wildlife-Detectives2Wildlife Detec­tives: The Poach­ing of Puget Sound (direct­ed by Katie Camp­bell) tells the true sto­ry of the fight to shut down down one of the most lucra­tive black mar­kets for wildlife on the West Coast. Poach­ers in near­by waters are cash­ing in on the soar­ing world­wide demand for clams, mus­sels, oys­ters and geo­ducks by ille­gal­ly har­vest­ing and sell­ing them in back-alley deals — an enter­prise that has trag­ic con­se­quences for both pub­lic health and the marine ecosys­tem. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, as detec­tives quick­ly learn, cheat­ing the sys­tem is much eas­i­er than polic­ing it.
