Blog Post Women Bring New Perspectives to Wildlife Law Enforcement in Thailand by Gateway Web Editor — last modified Mar 19, 2019 04:16 PM
The international illicit trade in endangered wildlife is driving many species to extinction. Animals such as pangolins, rhinos, elephants and tigers are disappearing at alarming rates. Behind this are sophisticated criminal networks that mostly operate with impunity. While law enforcement agencies are plagued with many issues ranging from weak capacity to limited funding, an often-overlooked shortcoming includes an acute gender imbalance which sees very few women on the frontlines of enforcement. There is increasing recognition globally that involving more women is an important factor in effective law enforcement. Some good examples are emerging, such as in Thailand.
