挑战

Low detection of wildlife trafficking at exit and entry points.

Moving away from traditional means to smuggle wildlife products between African countries and out of the continent, poaching syndicates are finding new trafficking routes to avoid 执法人员. They are also changing the form in which illegal wildlife products are transported — rhino horn is sometimes crushed into a powder or processed into beads to get past customs authorities. 与此同时, limited collaboration between national agencies and across regions creates delays in deploying the appropriate response teams to address traffickers and handle smuggled wildlife products when they are caught.

Wildlife criminals escape through weak legislation and uneven enforcement of laws.

While many African countries have developed legal frameworks to combat criminal activity, poor awareness of wildlife crime itself limits the proper enforcement of wildlife acts. Cases generally require extended periods of concrete investigation, but this process is hampered by a lack of resources and institutional inadequacies. 缺乏国际法律合作, inadequate clarity on how to deliver sentences also allows poachers and wildlife traffickers to slip through the cracks.

行动计划
Deploying sniffer dogs to intercept smuggled wildlife products.

Ag真人娱乐’s 犬类s for Conservation program trains detection units made up of wildlife rangers and sniffer dogs and deploys them to strategic exit and entry ports. Primed to intercept even the smallest piece of wildlife products concealed in the most clever ways, 这些小组驻扎在肯尼亚的人口贩卖热点地区, 坦桑尼亚, 乌干达, 莫桑比克, 和博茨瓦纳.

培训
Streamlining wildlife crime prosecution, law enforcement, and investigation.

Although a reliable network of informants gathering 情报 on the ground allows officials to position their response strategically, concentrated anti-poaching efforts must engage all arms of the criminal justice system. This ensures that wildlife offenders cannot escape their crimes through bribes or legal loopholes. Ag真人娱乐 facilitates regional judicial training sessions with magistrates, 执法人员, and customs agents to develop legal frameworks for the application of national wildlife laws to individual cases of wildlife crime. 除了指导起诉程序, these Wildlife Judicial and Prosecutorial Assistance 培训s also outline how to handle, 保存, 并提供实质性证据, as well as how to manage wildlife crime scene investigations.

职业发展
