About the event
Dr. Jared Margulies discusses the current state of the illegal plant trade and “plant poaching” — exploring how and why people collect endangered plants, who's getting locked-up for it, and the many challenges to fighting practices that are sending some species quickly into extinction. Many of these plants, including household succulents, are among the most endangered species in the world.
