Wildlife Trade Campaign News Archive

Many laws exist to protect elephants, rhinos and tigers, but governments are not doing all they can to save them.

We are asking countries to protect threatened animal populations by:
  • increasing law enforcement
  • imposing strict deterrents
  • reducing demand for endangered species products

Rangers and communities living near protected areas are also being threatened by armed poachers going after wildlife.

Criminals involved in illegal wildlife trade are distributing guns, intimidating communities, and bribing officials in order to get what they want.
