International wildlife crime is a crime of complexities like no other. Far beyond basic human greed and the simplistic notion that it is the killing, destruction, and selling of thousands of species of flora and fauna around us, wildlife crime encompasses so much more. 

It is about extinction and fractured ecosystems, legal wildlife markets and pandemic disease, international trafficking and the failure of criminal justice systems to provide meaningful deterrent, an omnipresence of corruption that enables all the right wheels to be greased, and insatiable Far East markets feeding off hundreds of years of tradition or belief.
