3 March marks World
Wildlife Day – a day which celebrates not only the intrinsic value of wild
fauna and flora but also acts as a reminder of the urgent need to tackle
wildlife and forest crime.
With the industrial-level decimation of some of the planet’s oldest forests and most iconic species, there has never been a more urgent time to take action against the criminal networks involved.
We want you to join us in calling for wildlife crime to be treated as a serious offence. Let’s ensure that sufficient penalties are in place to properly fight organized crime and let's end this.
Interested in showing your support? Here's how:
UNODC assists Governments and others across the world to roll back threats caused by transnational organized crime. In tackling wildlife crime and the criminal networks behind this, UNODC works together with a range of partner organizations, including CITES, INTERPOL, the World Bank, WCO, UNDP, UNEP and UNWTO.
