Wildlife trafficking is a multi-billion dollar criminal industry

Driven by demand in expanding economies, the illegal trade in wildlife products threatens the survival of endangered species. WildAid’s programs persuade consumers to stop buying illicit products like ivory, rhino horn and shark fin soup. We also work with leaders, partners and communities to protect marine reserves, reduce climate change impacts, and increase support for conservation.
