EIA’s wildlife campaign delivers lasting protections for some of the world’s most iconic species threatened by illegal trade and habitat degradation. Since its inception in 1984, EIA has been dedicated to protecting our world’s wildlife, relying on the best available scientific and trade data and intelligence from investigations, to support policies and actions that protect threatened and endangered species. EIA’s work focuses on stopping the illegal and unsustainable killing of, and trade in, threatened and endangered species like elephants and rhinos, and protecting the Arctic home of belugas and other whales and the forest habitats of great apes like orangutans.

- Cease the illegal and unsustainable killing of threatened and endangered species and unsustainable commercial trade in their parts.
