Wildlife Trade Specialists

our collaborators working in partnership to maximise our conservation impact

TRAFFIC takes deliberate action to work in partnership to maximise our conservation impact, and influence key target audiences on behalf of wildlife in trade and the people who depend on them.

Collaborators include WWF and IUCN, other NGOs, government agencies, inter-governmental organisations such as CITES and the World Customs Organisation, and key businesses and corporate leaders. In some cases these collaborations are formalised under formal co-operation or partnership agreements. Below is a selection of organisations we work with.

Roland Melisch, Senior Director - Europe and Africa

Targeted and effective collaboration is key to the success of conservation. We actively engage relevant stakeholders to bring about positive, lasting solutions.

founding organisations

international conventions

We work particularly closely with major international conventions concerning wildlife trade and sustainable development; providing the latest information and expert analysis to guide deicison-making processes.

inter-governmental organisations

Inter-governmental organisations can often be the most effective way of cementing international commitments within highly specialised areas. TRAFFIC provides expert advice, analysis and insight to help guide policy and regulatory decisions

businesses

In the case of legal wildlife trade, ensuring businesses adopt responsible sourcing practices and develop traceability frameworks is a top priority in the move towards sustainable trade. Engaging the private sector in identifying supply chains and platforms at risk of exploitation by wildlife traffickers helps us fight back against illegal trade.

non-governmental organisations

Partnerships with strategic, like-minded NGOs helps us maximise our conservation impact. We have collaborated with a wide range of organisations both in the field, across supply chains, within policy, and beyond.

other partnerships

We also work with a number of academic, research, and university organisations helping to maximise our conservation impact.
