Our People

A small but diverse and dedicated team of professionals tackling transnational organised wildlife crime

The Wildlife Justice Commissions’ community is made up of teams of investigators, analysts, diplomats, lawyers, communicators and administrators, committed to our core objective of disrupting and helping dismantle transnational organised wildlife crime. We are a young organisation – only formed in 2015 – but we have decades of experience to bring to our work.

At the core of who we are and what we do is our investigations teams, our Intelligence Development Unit and our policy experts. The nature of their work is behind the scenes and confidential. But their expertise in conducting complex investigations across national borders and the vital intelligence they gather enables us to assist law enforcement agencies disrupt the devastating traffic in wildlife and encourage the political will needed to do what it takes to buy time for vulnerable species, and build tomorrow’s sustainable solutions.

We also have an incredible group of experts in our Supervisory Board, the WJC Council and the Independent Review Panel committed to supporting the organisation.

Our small team represents eighteen different countries and cultures and we are very proud of our diversity. Read more about our work here.
