THE ILLEGAL WILDLIFE TRADE NETWORK
The illegal wildlife trade is a serious conservation problem and has a negative effect on the viability of many wildlife populations. It is one of the major threats to the survival of many species. We monitor the illegal trade network and collecting evidences, as well as working with governments and relevant stakeholders to strengthen regulatory frameworks, provide intelligence, and work with agencies to crack down the illegal trade network within Vietnam and beyond its border.
