WCP Funding Partners

Because of the transnational nature of organized crime networks involved in wildlife trafficking, regionally and nationally, local international investigations need to be undertaken to identify and prosecute illegal wildlife traffickers. Such transnational policy efforts take cooperation, motivated individuals and funding. 

Wildlife Crime Prevention Funding Partners are organisations that fund WCP’s organisational activities and operational activities in the field.  But WCP Funding Partners are more than just financial supporters; they offer WCP valuable advice and guidance along the way. They are truly partners in everything we achieve and we are proud that they are part of Wildlife Crime Prevention. Without their technical and strategic support none of our work would be possible.
