Wildlife Crime Scorecard

Assessing the commitment of countries to STOP illegal wildlife trade
The WWF Wildlife Crime Scorecard report selects 23 range, transit and consumer countries from Asia and Africa facing the highest levels of illegal trade in elephant ivory, rhino horn and tiger parts.

The scorecard was produced to coincide with the 62nd Standing Committee meeting of CITES, the international endangered species trade convention, and evaluates each country's progress since the last meeting. It measures progress towards compliance with and enforcement of CITES commitments for the three species groups.

International commercial trade of elephants, rhinos and tigers – and their parts and products – is almost universally prohibited by CITES, however the enforcement of this restriction remains weak.

Illegal trade in ivory, rhino horn and tiger parts is of major conservation concern.
