consultancies and tenders

TO CONDUCT FORMATIVE RESEARCH ON CONSUMER DEMAND FOR WILDLIFE PARTS AND PRODUCTS

TRAFFIC is a leading non-governmental organisation working globally on trade in wild animals and plants in the context of both biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. Our team of staff around the world carry out research, investigations and analysis to compile the evidence we use to catalyse action by governments, businesses and individuals, in collaboration with a wide range of partners, to help ensure that wildlife trade is not a threat to the conservation of nature. Unsustainable consumer demand for wildlife products is a leading cause for the threats facing many species across the world. TRAFFIC has been at the forefront of innovation within the field of Social and Behavioural Change Communications (SBCC), running various projects with relevant stakeholders targeting specific consumers of a variety of threatened wildlife. TRAFFIC uses the SBCC approach that includes market and consumer research to guide campaign design.

The Zoological Society of London (ZSL) is an international conservation charity working to create a world where wildlife thrives. From investigating the health threats facing animals to helping people and wildlife live alongside each other, ZSL is committed to bringing wildlife back from the brink of extinction through science, field conservation around the world, and engaging millions of people through ZSL’s two Zoos, ZSL London and ZSL Whipsnade Zoos. ZSL’s global Pangolin Programme has pioneered research, law enforcement capacity building, community engagement, and policy advocacy. ZSL also hosts the IUCN SSC Pangolin Specialist Group. Since 2015, ZSL Thailand’s Pangolin Project, with DNP, has been working to improve the understanding and protection of pangolins at the source through monitoring, strengthening enforcement, and engaging local communities as pangolin protectors.
