Establishing Wildlife Crime Units to Boost the Fight Against Poaching and Illegal Wildlife Trade in The Congo Basin. By Alain Ononino, World Wide Fund

February 1, 2019

Forest elephant decline was estimated to be 62% across the Congo Basin between 2002 and 2011 and up to 90% in some landscapes between 2011 and 2015.

In this presentation, Alain Ononino, Law Enforcement Coordinator for Cameroon, World Wide Fund (WWF), presented WWF's shift in traditional anti-poaching and law enforcement approach to a more holistic one. WWF is establishing field wildlife crime units with a focus on intelligence gathering, support to targeted/intelligence-led operations, judiciary follow-up and communication, combined with policy influencing at the national and regional levels.
