Prince William hails progress in the fight against the Illegal Wildlife Trade at United for Wildlife’s Global Summit in London.
Speaking at the United for Wildlife Global Summit in London, The Prince set out the damaging impact of the illegal wildlife trade, which is worth up to $20 billion annually and is associated with violent crime, corruption and other forms of trafficking. “The illegal wildlife trade is a crime that robs us all of our most precious natural resources, funds organised crime, and the harms of which are often directly felt by the most vulnerable communities,” said Prince William, who founded United for Wildlife with the Royal Foundation.
During the summit, the Eastern and Southern Africa Anti-Money Laundering Group (ESAAMLG) and United for Wildlife announced a formal partnership to work together to address the illegal wildlife trade using ‘follow the money’ principles and money laundering regulation. The regional partnership comprising 19 countries will mark the first international public-private partnership for any financial crime.
