The Financial Crime Forum masthead

Trafficking in Endangered Species

Trafficking is, simply, the illegal trade in things or persons.


This Forum is fully remote. 20 June, 2023 - 12:00 GMT




Event Info.

Whenever the trade in something is illegal, someone will want it and someone else will be willing to provide it for a price.

It might first appear as if there is no cost to society (other than lost taxes) for the satisfaction of a demand but that is far from true.

The trade in endangered species and products made from them is, in fact, only a part of the problem relating to trade in animals and plants but it's that which this Forum will concentrate on.

And all of this is for profit. Trafficking may be a technical crime but it's also a financial crime.

Who should attend.
