A major aspect of tackling illegal wildlife trade is protecting species from poaching and preventing them from entering the trade chain in the first place.

Fauna & Flora International (FFI) has significant expertise and experience in protecting species and engaging with communities so that they play central role in the management of their natural resources. Find out more about our work to address illegal trade.

FFI is focusing on strengthening, expanding and replicating our work (and that of our partners) to prevent species from entering trade and secure key populations, with an emphasis on locally-led conservation action.

For more information read our blog post on the role of community collaboration in reducing illegal wildlife trade.
