A international conservation group reported Tuesday that trade in exotic species of animals and plants is big business in the U.S. and worldwide. The non-profit International Fund for Animal Welfare found what it call "an alarming" number of advertisements of the internet for ivory from elephants as well as exotic birds and other animal species.
