Fuller Symposium 2012: Conservation Crime | November 14, 2012 | National Geographic Society | Washington, D.C.

Scientific advancements, innovative technologies, and strengthened policy initiatives have the potential to turn the tide against the organized crime syndicates pushing many of our most iconic species toward extinction and putting local communities at risk.
Global leaders shared their insights on the growing crisis of wildlife crime at the 2012 Fuller Symposium. The symposium was held on November 14, 2012 at the National Geographic Society in Washington, D.C.
