The African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) and Irdeto have partnered to combat poaching and wildlife crimes online. The illegal selling of animal parts is the fourth biggest illicit industry worldwide behind drugs, counterfeit goods and human trafficking. These wildlife crimes not only decimate animal populations but also have a negative effect on the entire ecosystem, impacting local economies that rely on these ecosystems for tourism.
By joining forces, AWF and Irdeto aim to protect animals from these crimes by leveraging Irdeto’s suite of cybersecurity services and technologies to investigate, identify and disrupt the sale of animal parts on the internet.
The partnership will also work with local law enforcement, providing key forensic data and intelligence to help locate and arrest the criminals responsible for this illegal trading.
