Organisatie | Organisation
The Wildlife Justice Commission, founded to protect vulnerable species from transnational organized crime, has created extraordinary impact since its establishment in 2015. In over eight years of disrupting and helping to dismantle transnational criminal networks trading in wildlife, timber, and fish, WJC has facilitated 201 arrests of high-level suspects, with a 100% conviction rate for cases that have gone before the courts, and helped to seize nearly 3.9 tonnes of ivory, 214 rhino horns, 7.9 tonnes of pangolin scales and other parts from endangered wildlife.
To further develop its impact, the Wildlife Justice Commission has expanded to Thailand and is currently working to establish a presence in the United States. WJC’s Dutch entity will remain a critical hub for work on development, external relations, and communications. The Hague office employs approximately 20 people, in total WJC employs around 110 persons.
