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 2019

Taking on the billion-dollar wildlife crime industry is no small task. Our work is global in its scope, labour intensive by its very nature, and often time consuming. Despite all these challenges, we are pleased that our finances remained healthy in 2019. We increased the capacity of our Intelligence Development Unit, expanded our investigations into new regions, enhanced our visibility and extended our reach into new supporter markets, while at the time maintaining the stability of our income and ensuring all our expenditure was well managed and accounted for.
