The Bottom Line Up Front

Transforming global counter-wildlife trafficking efforts through intelligence, data management, and collaboration.

The future of the human species is inextricably linked to the future of the biodiversity around us. Wildlife crime is a multi-billion-dollar transnational illicit economy putting unsustainable pressure on this biodiversity, threatening public health, and perpetuating corruption.

C4ADS combats wildlife crime by going after the networks responsible. Through a collaborative approach, we serve as a data and technology hub for a global coalition of front-line counter-wildlife trafficking (CWT) organizations. Alongside these partners, we are able to coordinate CWT efforts, increase local analytical capacity, and consolidate data to build a global picture of how wildlife crime is devastating our world’s species. With this improved understanding, we work with our partners to put an end to wildlife crime and protect our natural world.
