I would like to see a world-wide legal agreement that anyone who is caught poaching any endangered animal anywhere in the world will receive an automatic life sentence in prison, no excuses (e.g., for food), and no exceptions (e.g., paying a fine in lieu of prison). Additionally, anyone caught destroying an endangered animal's habitat would receive a minimum ten year sentence in prison, no excuses, no exceptions. Today I watched a video where a tribe of native Africans had practically eliminated all Acacia trees that giraffes used for food and sold the wood for a few pennies for a small bundle. Stacks and stacks of Acacia tree wood bundles were being prepared for sale by these natives while the giraffes had nothing to eat and will soon die of starvation. The natives know this, do not care, and get away with it.
