Stimson Report Calls for Global Effort to Cut Poaching & Other Wildlife Crimes That Fund Terrorists

in Program

Governments
around the world should work with each other, local residents and the private
sector to reduce poaching and wildlife crimes that are funneling an estimated
$19 billion annually to terrorists and other criminals, a Stimson
Center report issued today recommends.

The
report – based on projects Stimson is running in East Africa – says that
“wildlife crime is no longer only a challenge to conservation, biodiversity and
development. Poaching is – just as the illegal trade in arms, drugs and
counterfeit goods – a serious threat to national and international security and
economic development.”
