Each year, while countless species are driven closer to extinction, criminals make billions from the sale of protected wildlife products. Not only does this senseless crime have a devastating impact on ever decreasing numbers of wild animals, it funds organized criminal activities and undermines national and regional political and economic security.

This World Wildlife Day, 3 March, join UNODC in saying NO to wildlife crime and spread the message as we work to end this illegal and unethical trade.
