Poachers, wildlife traffickers and cons are using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Blogs and all forms of social media, and sometimes mainstream media, to track the location of where critically endangered animals are and the locations of in-demand species used for the scientifically proven false fake traditional medicines. These poachers, wildlife traffickers and cons also use social media platforms and some main stream media to locate critically endangered and in demand animals to scalp their fur or other body parts for the misguided, ancient, outdated and uneducated belief that owning the fur of a tiger, the horn of a Rhino, the claws of a Lion, and countless more sickening things, gives them status. Cons latch onto stories in social media and create fake fundraising campaigns usually on fundraising sites where virtually no credential checking is required. Cee4life will no longer be announcing locations of any wild animals that we aid until the safety of the animal is secured. Be-careful, its a cyber crime jungle out there.
