In Cold Blood – Combating organised wildlife crime

Just days before the UK’s landmark Conference on Illegal Wildlife Trade, our report sets out the key actions we believe essential to tackle the international organised criminal networks plundering the environment.

Drawing on 30 years of experience at the front lines of wildlife crime, In Cold Blood examines wildlife crime case histories and highlights crucial lessons to be learnt for better enforcement and conservation.

We urge governments to adopt and enact a variety of actions to strengthen domestic legal frameworks, build effective enforcement, dismantle international wildlife crime networks and supress demand.
