#SeriousAboutWildlifeCrime

Just one week after the fourth official World Wildlife Day, on March 3rd, the goal of this talk is to underline the importance of combating wildlife crime on all levels.

The thematic focus will be put on effective legal and technical countermeasures against poaching, which continues to be very lucrative and ever-growing business that is increasingly ruled by corruption. Immediate action is important, considering that wildlife officials are warning that we are losing millions of animals per year due to illegal poaching, which might end in the extinction of numerous wildlife species. However, we will also try to look at the considerable financial implications of illegal wildlife trade. With estimates ranging from 10 to 200 billion US Dollars per year, it comes as no surprise that wildlife crime is now ranked among drug, arms and human trafficking as one of the most profitable organised crimes.
