Wildlife trafficking is among the largest global crimes, along with drugs, counterfeiting, and human trafficking according to TRAFFIC and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). It is also a multi-billion dollar business with estimates between US$7-$23 billion annually with illegal fishing additionally generating annually US$11-$24 billion in profits according to a 2016 UNEP-INTERPOL report. Wildlife trafficking impacts thousands of species and with it, links to environmental degradation, human trafficking, and corruption. Illegal fishing is intertwined with forced labour as well as serious ecological impacts. These intersecting crimes devastate ecosystems and human lives, as well as endangering security and public health.

These partnerships are examining the complexities of these crimes and working to eliminate risk. This webinar will address how wildlife trafficking and illegal fishing are combined with other forms of transnational organized crime and how each effect various industries within the private sector.
