Scheduled Extinction: Our Last Chance to Protect the Threatened African Mukula Trees

As representatives from over 180 countries meet in Geneva for the 18th Conference of the Parties (CoP18) of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), EIA releases a new report documenting the highly destructive trade in “mukula” wood from Central and Southern Africa. Asian timber trafficking networks have been plundering the forests for years to export this valuable timber, despite several bans that have been issued during that time in both Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Scheduled Extinction: Our Last Chance to Protect the Threatened African Mukula Trees warns that without international regulation to control the trade, the mukula tree will be driven to extinction.
