Synopsis by Alice Day
As long as a market exists for products made from illegally obtained materials, there will be individuals who attempt to procure those materials. In the case of ivory, walruses have been targeted, with their tusks being the prize. In Challenge of the Seas, Vol. 8: Trouble With the Law, host Ted Danson looks at the efforts made by an undercover agent to expose the activities associated with the ivory trade. This series of programs provides information to heighten the awareness of threats to the ocean environment and the inhabitants of the world's seas.
