Inquiry into wildlife crime

Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) launches inquiry into wildlife crime

The new inquiry will examine the scale of wildlife crime in the UK, including damage and destruction to species and habitats. It will also examine the scale of, and risks posed by, the illicit trade in wildlife and wildlife products. The inquiry will consider the role of the Government and other bodies in England and Wales in preventing, detecting and prosecuting these types of crime, as well as what action the Government can take internationally to tackle the problems of illegal trade.

The committee invites organisations and members of the public to submit written evidence, setting out their views on these issues. More wide ranging responses are also welcome. Submissions should ideally be sent to the Committee by Friday 24th February, although later submissions may be accepted.

World leading conservationists are launching a global campaign to combat the illegal trade in wildlife - and are calling on members of the public to help solve the crisis. Chester Zoo is leading the initiative in Europe in a battle to save hundreds of species threatened with extinction, joining forces with the international wildlife trade monitor TRAFFIC - as well as Taronga Zoo in Australia and San Diego Zoo in the USA. Experts hope that the new worldwide campaign will inspire the public to report offences when they see or suspect them via Wildlife Witness, a free smartphone app. More

Durrell's Professor Carl Jones is this year's winner of the world’s leading award for animal conservation, the Indianapolis Prize. Professor Jones has been recognised for bringing back at least nine species from the brink of extinction - work made possible through the implementation of hands-on animal husbandry techniques developed in contemporary zoological institutions.
