Our operations focus on the high-level criminals to achieve the biggest impact
Within four years of existence, we have conducted 24 wildlife crime investigations in 24 Asian and African countries across the supply chain, including source, transit and destination. We have sparked powerful results, disseminating 250 intelligence reports and helping to secure 93 arrests, focusing on high level criminals, those driving the trade.
In 2018, the work of the wildlife law enforcement authorities of India, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Mozambique and Viet Nam, had, with our help, a major impact on the trafficking of threatened and critically endangered species.
We delivered intelligence and evidence, some from cases that had been ongoing for two years, which resulted on the arrest of 22 high-level traffickers and the seizure of hundreds of live animals and their parts. These results also helped to identify other key players along the supply chain.
