The global illegal wildlife trade is worth an estimated $7-23 billion a year billion every year, but these huge profits are seldom targeted.

The new EIA report 'Money Trails - Identifying financial flows linked to wildlife trafficking' looks at the current state of play and makes the case for using financial investigations and anti-money laundering laws as standard when investigating wildlife crime.

It also features case studies from major EIA investigations which reveal widespread use of the formal financial system by wildlife crime syndicates and the important role banks can play in detecting and reporting suspicious transactions. www.eia-international.org
