Wildlife in Trade Programme

The purpose of the Wildlife in Trade Programme is to reduce trade-related threats that impact on the survival of wild animals and plants.

We continuously explore innovative approaches and opportunities to achieve our purpose. We focus our initiatives on five thematic areas: Prevention, Detection, Justice, Governance and Use. We implement projects that strengthen both the proactive and reactive capabilities of the criminal justice system. We continually strive to improve our knowledge on species in trade and trends, to identify emerging threats as well as identify opportunities to improve compliance. We strive to be a thought leader within the wildlife trade sector.

We achieve this through the following projects:

• Wildlife Crimes Prevention
• Detection of Wildlife Crimes
• Justice for Wildlife
• Wildlife and the Law
• Eco-Use Project

Target species:

• Rhinos
• Pangolins
• Cycads
