Following the money – hitting the illegal wildlife trade where it hurts

July 2, 2020

The global illegal wildlife trade is worth billions every year, money which fuels further environmental crime, drives corruption and undermines sustainable development and conservation – but these huge profits are seldom targeted.

In this edition, Julian Newman, EIA’s Campaigns Director, talks with Press & Communications Officer Paul Newman about how it’s possible to track down the financial flows and how tackling money laundering can be a vital weapon in the fight against illegal wildlife trade by hitting major wildlife criminals where it hurts most – in their pockets.
