O tráfico ilegal de animais silvestres no Brasil compromete os esforços conservacionistas e o crescimento econômico, mas a coleta insuficiente de dados e má coordenação, também dificulta os eforços de fiscalização e combate.

Cambridge, Reino Unido, 27 de julho, 2020 -  A cada ano, milhões de animais silvestres e um grande volume de produtos dos mesmos são traficados domesticamente e internacionalmente dentro e fora do Brasil, mas a falta de dados de qualidade e o compartilhamento dos mesmos e coordenação da fiscalização entre as autoridades estaduais e federais, ajudam a esconder a extensão real do tráfico ilegal, de acordo com um novo relatório da TRAFFIC, “Wildlife Trafficking in Brazil”
