European Commission seeks input on illegal wildlife trade

In many parts of the world, the illegal trade in wildlife is having a devastating impact on natural ecosystems and vulnerable species. 


The European Commission is now seeking guidance from experts, NGOs, governments, and others interested in the illegal wildlife trade.  The EC wants to devise strategies for better combating illegal trade and the organized syndicates that support it.

The comment period runs from Feb. 7 to April 10.  See this weblink for details.
