REPORT: TO END ILLEGAL WILDLIFE TRAFFICKING, FOLLOW THE MONEY

On 9 September, OCCRP said that a recent report says that wildlife crime, from poaching to trafficking, remains a booming industry in East Africa, and that it is a far more organised crime than previously imagined, and arrests need to be accompanied by financial investigations to truly dismantle the trade.  The report is from the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime (G-TOC).
