About this talk

Despite its devastating impacts on biodiversity, our climate, local communities, health, security, and entire ecosystems, combatting wildlife crime is still noticeably absent from our international criminal law framework. Co-hosted by the Global Initiative to End Wildlife Crime and Sea Shepherd Legal, this session will feature experts in the fields of public policy, criminology, and environmental protection to discuss the rationale for a global agreement on wildlife crime, taking the form of a fourth protocol under the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime. It will use examples from land and sea, including efforts to combat illegal, unregulated, and unreported fishing.
