Lines of Action

Law enforcement cooperation and networking

The Alliance for Wild Fauna and Forests seeks to improve the involvement and participation of civil society to strengthen the application and enforcement of the law, as well as cooperation with and between the authorities of Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia, and Peru tri-border zones with Brazil, to fight against wildlife and timber trafficking.

In order to achieve this, WCS and WWF seek to:

Improving common understanding
On the dynamics of wildlife and timber trafficking in the Andean-Amazon countries, generating diagnoses for the countries and their border areas on emerging trends and priority species to strengthen the fight against the existing illegal trade.
Develop collaboration mechanisms
Between civil society and government agencies to improve law enforcement and control and surveillance systems in order to address the problem of wildlife and timber trafficking.
Informing and involving civil society partners
In support of the actions carried out by the authorities to combat wildlife and timber trafficking.
