The illegal wildlife trade is a $20 billion dollar industry, exceeded only by the illegal trades in drugs, weapons, and people. The money stimulates violence, corruption and a sophisticated and dangerous international network of criminals. Two of the world's most iconic species are at the centre of this nightmare. With an average of 82 elephants and four rhino poached every day, there's now a real threat that these animals could become extinct in the wild. Hugh travels to Mozambique's worst affected area, Niassa National Reserve, to find out why they've lost almost two thirds of their elephants in only three years. He joins conservationists, rangers and villagers as he patrols from the air and on the ground to discover the grim reality of the situation.
