Together We Can Stop Wildlife Crime – did you know…

Wildlife crime is now the most urgent threat to three of the world’s best-loved species—elephants, rhinos and tigers.

The global value of illegal wildlife trade is between $7.8 and $10 billion per year. It is a major illicit transnational activity worldwide—along with arms, drugs and human trafficking. High-level traders and kingpins are rarely arrested, prosecuted, convicted or punished for their crimes.

 Even more worrying, these species cannot survive high levels of poaching for long.

We need your help to save wildlife and people from becoming victims of wildlife crime. Join our campaign and help us: email: info@soti-npc.org for more on how you can help.

  • Push governments to protect threatened animal populations by increasing law enforcement, imposing strict deterrents, reducing demand for endangered species products and honoring international commitments made under CITES.
  • Speak up on behalf of those on the frontlines being threatened by armed poachers so they are properly equipped, trained and compensated.
  • Reduce demand for illegal wildlife parts and products by encouraging others to ask questions and get the facts before buying any wildlife or plant product.
