The Fight Against Wildlife Trafficking

  • Tanya Wyatt
Part of the Critical Criminological Perspectives book series (CCRP)


The illegal wildlife trade is nestled between law enforcement, non-human animal welfare and environmental protection. This unique position means that there are multiple stakeholders determining the ways in which wildlife trafficking can be combatted. Whilst all are well-meaning, different kinds of organisations have different missions, so this diverse array of stakeholders may have approaches that come into conflict with one another. This chapter presents the agendas that collide when compromise must be reached between policing, conservation and the economy in relation to wildlife trafficking.
