Wildlife trafficking undermines security, rule of law, and sustainable economic growth. The loss of iconic species reduces Indonesia’s prospects for nature-based tourism and sustainable fisheries. USAID BIJAK combats wildlife trafficking by:
Supporting the Government of Indonesia in strengthening its committment to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, or CITES;
Collaborating with public and private sector partners to disrupt wildlife trafficking activities in the domestic transportation sector; and
Supporting campaigns to reduce domestic demand for wildlife and their products, including sharks, songbirds, and other species.
