A new online video series from the World Wildlife Fund explores wildlife crime and the global poaching crisis that's devastating populations of some of the world's most well-known animals.

The first episode of "Stop Wildlife Crime," a five-part web series from WWF, premiered September 1. "It's Dead Serious" examines the size of the multibillion-dollar illegal wildlife trade and its destabilizing effect on governments and economies.

Wildlife crimes "threaten not only animals, but our own global security," WWF explained in a press release.

New episodes of "Stop Wildlife Crime" will premiere every Sunday in September at 7 p.m. EST.
