'Wildlife Watch' Produces Articles About Threatened Animals

National Geographic recently launched a publication called 'Wildlife Watch,' which will produce factual articles about threatened species. The entire publication is dedicated to giving a "voice to exploited or vulnerable wildlife around the world."

Wildlife Watch will bring awareness of poaching and animal slaughter directly to the public's attention. The publication will also feature stories about individuals, organizations and programs that are devoted to the protection of wildlife.

National Geographic is committed to publishing relevant content and investigative journalism stories that will reduce the brutal, animal-related crimes. In honor of this new publication, National Geographic created a 'Special Investigations Unit.' This unit will be solely responsible for exposing "commercial-scale exploitation of endangered or valued natural resources while empowering civil society, including local journalists and non-governmental organizations."
