In 2020, the Wildlife Justice Commission adapted quickly to COVID-19 restrictions to continue disrupting criminal networks, bridging the intelligence gap, growing our influence, and strengthening alliances.
About the WJC
The following short film explains how the Wildlife Justice Commission works, what type of organised criminal networks we investigate and why we do what we do. See Our Work.
Our mission: to disrupt and help dismantle the criminal networks that profit from the trafficking of wildlife, timber and fish, a major crime that brings species to extinction and puts global security and public health at risk.
Wildlife crime is believed to intersect with other transnational organised crimes. Our webinar with UNODC and our new briefing paper expose how intelligence analysis can lead to a greater understanding of this crime convergence.

Data from our investigations indicates a declining trend in the value of raw ivory since 2017 while trafficking persists, with criminal networks able to smuggle large quantities despite COVID-19 restrictions.
