Criminal Justice Sciences chair talks about how to reduce poaching of endangered species

Jackie Schneider, chair of the Department of Criminal Justice Sciences, believes that criminologists can be more involved when it comes to saving endangered species.

Schneider believes that many of the strategies that have been successful against theft and drug trafficking can also work against poaching and illegal trade in endangered species.
