ABOUT THE ORGANISATION
Each year, millions of animals are illegally caught or killed to be sold as pets, trophies, skins, high-end trinkets and traditional medicine. Run by dangerous criminal networks, the illegal wildlife trade generates up to $23 billion a year, making it the fourth largest criminal industry in the world after drugs, arms and human trafficking. Wildlife crime not only threatens the survival of some of our planet''s most iconic species, it also fuels corruption, destabilizes communities and funds violent extremism across the globe.
The organization was founded in 2018 and is zeroing in on wildlife trafficking syndicates to fight back and put an end to wildlife crime. Their mission is to dismantle the illegal wildlife trade by supporting governments and law enforcement agencies in investigating, arresting and prosecuting wildlife traffickers.
