Tackling Wildlife Crime
Wildlife crime is a significant threat to conservation, animal welfare and the wider environment. However, most wildlife crimes in England and Wales are not centrally recorded. Enforcement officers are working hard to tackle this area of crime, but they are hindered by the lack of a proper recording and reporting process.
Our annual reports show the scale of wildlife crime in England and Wales, and call on the Government to ensure this crime is tackled effectively.
