WWF works to sustain the natural world for the benefit of people and wildlife, collaborating with partners from local to global levels in nearly 100 countries.
Illegal wildlife trafficking is one of the world's top criminal activities — ranked alongside drugs, arms, and human trafficking. The international crime syndicates running this trade are lining their pockets with billions of dollars, while they slaughter animals at rates never seen before, threaten lives, and even impact global security.
WWF is at the forefront of the fight to stop wildlife crime. Recently, we urged Thailand to ban its ivory trade and secured strong action from champions such as President Obama. But our work is not done. Together we can make it possible for elephants to keep their ivory, rhinos their horns, and tigers their skins.
