Whole species are being hunted to extinction, as part of an illegal trade that benefits organised criminal gangs. The illegal wildlife trade is valued between $50-150 billion USD per year and is one of the five most lucrative global crimes. Illegal killing and trading of wild animals is a global crisis, with species being hunted to extinction for their horns, skins and teeth.
United for Wildlife works to tackle illegal wildlife trade by bringing together conservation organisations, governments, and global corporations. Led by The Duke of Cambridge and The Royal Foundation, United for Wildlife is working to protect endangered species like elephants, rhinos, tigers and pangolins so they can share our world with future generations.
Together we can:
1. Support new and innovative ways to protect animals against poachers.
2. Combine forces to crack down on trafficking.
3. Change global mindsets and reduce demand.
