Reversing the Tide
Wildlife trafficking has grown to become one of the world’s largest forms of organized crime, depleting the planet of many of its beloved species. The Freeland Foundation, with the support from both governmental and nongovernmental organizations, published "Reversing the Tide of Wildlife Poaching and Trafficking" in the aim of disrupting this multi-billion dollar industry, through providing information on the severity of the issue as well as recommendations on how best to combat wildlife trafficking.
The report discusses wildlife products commonly trafficked, smuggling techniques, consumer and supplier countries, seizure maps and locations, and the best practices to help prevent future trafficking. It also explores the importance of programs, such as Freeland’s specialized counter wildlife trafficking program, ARREST (Asia’s Regional Response to Endangered Species Trafficking), that enabled the exchange of information across different government bodies, transnational organizations, and other actors which led to the seizure of over US$ 36.5 million in assets from a wildlife crime syndicate in 2014.
