World leaders seek to cull animal trade

The illegal trade of animals is a multi-billion dollar industry and causes the death of thousands of animals annually.

    Some of the world's most endangered animals will be the focus when world leaders meet in London on Thursday.

    They will discuss how to eradicate the illegal wildlife trade.

    It is a multi-billion dollar industry that sees thousands of animals killed every year for ivory, horns and fur.
