As an organisation, 2021 was our most successful year since our founding in 2015. Much of our efforts in previous years came to fruition, and we played a crucial role in major arrests in Thailand and Nigeria.
About the Wildlife Justice Commission
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.
The Wildlife Justice Commission has launched a new briefing paper about China’s largest ever ivory trafficking case and is hosting a side event - Tackling corruption linked to environmental crime - with Belgium, France, and the UNODC at the upcoming CoSP to UNCAC to discuss its findings.
Our Director of Intelligence, Sarah Stoner, recently spoke at TEDxVitosha about the trafficking of pangolins, organised wildlife crime, and the role of intelligence analysis.
The Wildlife Justice Commission is concerned by the sheer amount of mammoth ivory products for sale on Chinese e-commerce sites. Mammoth ivory may perpetuate the demand for elephant ivory. More research is needed to understand the supply chain.
