our wildlife is worth protecting
Poaching. Corruption. Unsustainable demand. Illegal trade. Just some of the issues forcing wildlife over a cliff edge.
Earth Day 2019 is about joining together to Protect our Species and saying no to watching them disappear forever. TRAFFIC is tackling illegal trade at the source, in the market, and everywhere inbetween, helping protect our threatened wildlife across the globe.

protecting species: on the ground
Help us stamp out illegal trade at the source.
We're utilising new technologies to help wildlife conservation, like in Southern Africa, where we're working with local partners on exciting new wildlife forensics labs, training, and networks to help collect evidence from wildlife crime scenes and ensure poachers are brought to justice.
protecting species: through enforcement
Connecting international enforcement agencies, and giving them new tools to curb wildlife crime.
Through cutting-edge tools like our Trade in Wildlife Information eXchange platforms we're connecting customs and enforcement officials across countries and within continents to help them detect, prevent, and prosecute illegal trade.
protecting species: through behaviour change
Consumer demand for illegal and endangered wildlife products is driving a ruthless poaching crisis in Africa and Asia.
Our behavioural change experts are developing targeted demand reduction initiatives in key consumer markets to change the motivations that lead people to buy pangolin, elephant, rhino, and other wildlife products.
protecting species: through sustainability
Ensuring that all wildlife trade is conducted at levels that don't threaten the survival of species in the wild is at the heart of what we do.
By influencing international policy, developing traceability systems to track the volumes and species in trade, and encouraging businesses to transition to sustainable supply chains, we're working to protect wildlife and the communities that depend on them.
