Background

The illegal trade in wild plants and animals remains a significant threat to nature and to human well-being. It contributes to the decline of biodiversity, threatens the livelihoods of local communities, undermines the rule of law, and brings with it public health risks.

This initiative, which will revise the EU action plan against wildlife trafficking, will help EU institutions and EU countries continue to coordinate measures and to address the most important sources of the problem.
