Wildlife Trade Campaign News Archive
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.
