TRAFFIC is a leading non-governmental organisation working globally on trade in wild animals and plants in the context of both biodiversity conservation and sustainable development whose mission is to ensure that trade in wild plants and animals is not a threat to the conservation of nature.
TRAFFIC plays a unique and leading role as a global wildlife trade specialist.
Our team of staff around the world carry out research, investigations and analysis to compile the evidence we use to catalyse action by governments, businesses and individuals, in collaboration with a wide range of partners, to help ensure that wildlife trade is not a threat to the conservation of nature.
Our team works in and connects across some of the world’s most critical wildlife trade hotspots to identify and help address both biodiversity conservation and sustainable development challenges and opportunities linked to trade in wild species.
“CCI is a global hub of conservation excellence and TRAFFIC is proud to bring our unique expertise and insights into wildlife trade, accumulated over several decades, into this remarkable partnership of solution-driven organisations.”Steven Broad, Former Executive Director – TRAFFIC
