One example is the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), the multilateral treaty seeking to prevent species becoming extinct as a result of trade. At the major Conference of Parties and other meetings, we input in advance via reports and briefings to advocate for stronger protection measures. Our seasoned campaigners also frequently make interventions on the conference floor to ensure key information isn’t overlooked or buried.
We also use our findings, following an exhaustive process of verification, to inform organisations and individuals on the front lines such as enforcement agencies, policy makers and civil society. These briefings advise the organisations on a range of matters such as the details of illegal smuggling routes and operations and the identities of key criminals involved in illegal trade.
