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.
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.
Findings of our Operation Jeopardy expose the need for international and intelligence-led law enforcement cooperation to deter the trafficking of ivory across the region.
New paper by the Wildlife Justice Commission and Monitor on the role of intelligence to address the high-volume trafficking of the vulnerable Indian Star tortoise.
Our new analysis Rapid assessment of the impact of COVID-19 on wildlife trafficking highlights that wildlife trafficking continues despite global travel restrictions and lockdown measures.
