Key Points in Document:

This summary report, developed in preparation for the 2012 Fuller Science for Nature Symposium on Conservation Crime, provides a high-level overview of persistent challenges and suggested priorities for improving the effectiveness of enforcement efforts, both of which are listed below:

-       Persistent Challenges:

  • Lack of political will
  • Lack of resources
  • Lack of capacity
  • Lack of interagency cooperation
  • Lack of transparency
  • Lack of performance monitoring

-       Priority enforcement strategies:

  • Stronger front-line deterrence
  • Proactive law enforcement action: intelligence-led detection and investigation
  • Closing the loopholes and leakages: meaningful multi-agency collaboration
  • Punishing the perpetrators: successful prosecutions and appropriate penalties
