Wildlife Crime Prevention, Lusaka, Zambia

Wildlife trade is a complex phenomenon, involving a multitude of species and a variety of markets and drivers. Animal poaching quickly evolves into a supply chain that is monopolised by organised crime syndicates. Additionally, when borders are under monitored the ease at which transnational illegal wildlife trafficking takes place is increased. Curtailing transnational illegal wildlife trafficking requires a broad and holistic approach. It was with this in mind the Wildlife Crime Prevention (WCP) was established in April 2017. WCP supports the Department of National Parks and Wildlife to reduce the illegal wildlife trade across Zambia and neighbouring countries throughout the region.
