Wildlife crime summit opens in London

World leaders have gathered in London to try and crack down on the global, illegal wildlife trade.

It comes amid warnings that hundreds of species are at risk of extinction due to poaching and wildlife crime.

The UK is promising to increase financial support for anti-poaching activities, and to do more to disrupt the flow of money related to the illegal wildlife trade.
