Wildlife Trafficking

Cheers to the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) for stopping an attempt to smuggle these 152 tortoises out of the country.

Wildlife smuggling does not just harm animals. This unlawful trafficking also hurts a country’s economy and tourism, because if there are fewer animals, there will be fewer tourists spending money on guides, hotels, and travel.

How can you help boost efforts to reduce wildlife trafficking?
