Specialist Nairobi team will help tackle wildlife crime

INTERPOL has announced the formation of specialist team to be based in Nairobi, Kenya, which will tackle criminals such as ivory poachers and rhino horn smugglers.

The team in Nairobi – who will be an extension of the Environmental Crime Unit based in Lyon, France – will collaborate with national law enforcement agencies to increase information exchange and assist with national and regional investigations with a specific focus on wildlife crime.

With the goal of stemming the illegal trade of ivory and rhino horn, the team will work with countries and partner organisations to combat elephant and rhino poaching as part of INTERPOL’s Project Wisdom.
