One of the greatest threats to Africa’s wildlife comes from outside of the continent. Rising influence in Asia and elsewhere has created a booming black market for elephant ivory and rhino horn, which has led to a poaching crisis on the African continent. As a result, wildlife trophies are often sold in gift shops for tourists around the world.
AWF is working with governments and other NGOs to shut down this illicit trade. Specifically, AWF is helping to increase global awareness of the crisis to reduce demand while engaging policymakers to ensure broad support in combating this serious issue. AWF is also on the ground strengthening law enforcement efforts through its Canines for Conservation Program by deploying sniffer dog teams at trafficking chokepoints—airports, seaports, and border crossings—to confiscate wildlife contraband before they leave African countries. In addition, AWF is helping tourists experience the beauty of Africa’s wildlife while supporting the economy by developing successful ecotourism lodges throughout Africa. These enterprises bring revenue to local communities, incentivize communities to protect area wildlife, and raise support for conservation activities. Lastly, AWF has been working with partners to identify tourism and co-management opportunities in protected areas, which will support the welfare of wildlife while promoting the appreciation of a country’s natural resources.
