              The world’s five remaining rhino species face unprecedented challenges. For rhino populations to recover, we need both an immediate halt to their rampant killing and a permanent shift in attitude to halt global demand for rhino horn.

                  A growing body of evidence is showing that a recent upswing in poaching is financing an increasingly sophisticated — and dangerous — criminal effort to smuggle wildlife goods such as elephant ivory, rhino horn, shark fins and other species such as pangolins.

                      The killing of African elephants for ivory is linked to organized crime and many believe it is linked to the funding of terrorist networks. Areas controlled by militants and gangs are used as staging areas for smuggling illegal ivory, and the profits from poaching are used to fund weapons purchases.

                          For over a decade, Conservation International has worked in Cambodia’s Central Cardamom Protected Forest — a key pangolin habitat — supporting the enforcement of wildlife protection laws, and engaging communities in wildlife patrols and forest management. CI also helped establish a center for rehabilitating injured pangolins confiscated from illegal trade and preparing them for a return to the wild.
