What is illegal wildlife trade?

Illegal wildlife trade is when live endangered animals, artifacts or products made from their parts, like elephant ivory, sea turtle leather, or jaguar teeth, are marketed and sold.

The use of social media and e-commerce platforms to illegally trade endangered animals has become the dominant pathway for connecting buyers and sellers around the world. This high-value trafficking poses enormous risk to wild populations of protected animals and to human health.
