WildAid is proud to be an NGO member of the new United States Wildlife Trafficking Alliance, announced by the White House and Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell on Wednesday.
This partnership has three primary objectives:
Via the Alliance website:
The Alliance will be working closely with U.S. government agencies that are addressing wildlife trafficking issues in the U.S, led by the U.S. Department of the Interior and its lead wildlife agency, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Secretary Sally Jewell is leading the U.S. effort for the government, in coordination with other key domestic agencies.
While the primary focus of the Alliance’s activities will be on the U.S. role in wildlife trafficking, some Alliance members also are, and will be, participating in anti-trafficking activities in other countries, in coordination with Secretary John Kerry and his team at the Department of State.
