Oxford Martin Programme on the Illegal Wildlife Trade

Oct 2016

A new programme at the Oxford Martin School brings together academics from conservation science, social intervention and cybersecurity to tackle the illegal wildlife trade.

The first research hub of its kind focused on this issue, the Oxford Martin Programme on the Illegal Wildlife Trade will develop new approaches to addressing the trade in illegal products, which is fuelled by rising wealth and social change and facilitated by the growth of the internet. Focusing on consumer behaviour and motivations, the team will collaborate with governments and conservation organisations on the ground to create, test, implement and evaluate the impact of real-world intervention strategies.
