What was once a "wild crop", harvested and managed by trappers, wild ginseng has now become an illegal cash source for organized poachers who dig up entire colony's of this plant without regard for the future. The dried root of the ginseng plant is currently in high demand on the black market in many urban centres. Wild ginseng is now an endangered species under the Endangered Species Act (Ontario) and as a result it is illegal to harvest or sell any part of the plant.
The caption of the ad reads:
"It is against the law to harvest and sell wild ginseng.
Ginseng is a plant native to the undisturbed forests of Ontario. Wild ginseng is very slow growing and requires special conditions to survive. Ontario trappers have a long history of conserving this species. Wild populations of this important plant are threatened by illegal harvest for commercial purposes."
