Princes to urge for step up in law enforcement

The Prince of Wales and Prince William will address guests from 26 countries on the 'serious crime' that is the illegal wildlife trade.

Speaking with Environment Secretary Owen Paterson they will call for a global partnership and urgent action to end wildlife crime. They will call for:

  • A reduction in demand for endangered wildlife products in markets around the world
  • A step up in law enforcement against the criminals involved
  • Help for local/rural communities to find viable alternatives to illegal wildlife trade
