our thoughts on key wildlife trade topics

Our Evidence to Influence approach dictates that our policy recommendations and programmatic decisions are grounded in insights and data gathered from our objective research.

Trade dynamics are complex, often unpredictable, and criminal modus operandi in a constant state of flux, making research and analysis essential components when forming perspectives on wildlife trade policy. Without these, unforseen consequences can result from even the most well-intentioned decisions, which is why we will only ever make recommendations on wildlife policy when we have supporting evidence to back up our rationale.

Find out where we stand and what we’re working to change on key wildlife trade issues below.

 

the goal that dictates our perspectives:

ensuring that trade in wild plants and animals is not a threat to the conservation of nature

an evidence-led approach is at the heart of all of our policy decisions. We will always be able to back up our insights and perspectives with objective research and analysis
