The Pet Industry News features an article on wildlife trafficking in their latest publication.
AELERT member, Iain Bruce was quoted in the article. Iain is the Manager Intelligence and Investigations Unit - Environmental Compliance Branch, Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).
““The government has invested $36 million to improve our efforts in recent time. In the past three years, DELWP has doubled the number of wildlife forest officers from around 35 to 70.

DELWP also uses the AELERT forum, a contact point to share information on wildlife trafficking compliance in resource management, and attends its bi-annual conference, he added.”
