Wildlife Crime Initiative Annual Update

This annual update covers the second year of the Wildlife Crime Initiative from July 2015-June 2016. While there were worrying stories this year, there were also notable signs of progress in all four of our thematic pillars: poaching, trafficking, buying, and policy.  We will continue to build on our existing work and aim to develop new and innovative directions with our partners that will have a critical impact in mobilizing and catalyzing global and national efforts to stop illegal wildlife crime.
