Financial and Annual Reports

Accountability and transparency

Efficiency, integrity and transparency are the core principles that drive our work and they also provide clarity on how we are funded and who we will take contributions from.

Our integrity and independence are not only core principles, which drive how we work, they also give clarity to how we are funded and who we will take donations from. We are working to stop a multi-billion-dollar illicit industry and operate with a tiny fraction of the funds at the disposal of the criminals. We maximise our resources to the fullest. And we are committed to ensure that the partners that make our work possible are updated on an ongoing basis on the use of their funding and the results that it yields.  

Our work requires courage to undertake and patience to deliver and we thank all the individuals and partners who support us and make our work possible. We would like to encourage interested partners to contact us here.

Our finances in 2020

The 2020 global lockdown certainly impacted our work and our accounts: the organisation spent significantly less on travel costs, project planning had to be amended, and fundraising was – for all organisations – a challenge. However, we delivered concrete results by contributing to dismantling criminal networks trading in wildlife, sharing our information with law enforcement and decision makers, as well as enhancing the visibility of our work and reinforcing our capacity. With some careful planning, the year was financially more successful than anticipated and the financial results of the Wildlife Justice Commission were more positive than budgeted. Thanks to all our donors and supporters who made our work possible during this challenging year.
