Our Counter Poaching/Trafficking Platform
#AntiSnare is an important aspect of the work done by WildTiger. We have operations at different locations in Asia working in conjunction with relevant government and non-government agencies as well as law enforcement.
Currently in South Asia there exists a serious poaching spike, leopards and tigers among the victims.
Our work ranges from on the ground patrolling (covert monitoring), technical assistance and capacity building for anti-poaching units as well as a highly important feature of our work, wildlife crime case follow up. Please refer to the HOME page for now regarding high profile cases and there will be a further update with increased detailing late in 2020 as we move forward in a highly important decade for wildlife.
The image above is of a leopard which died as a result of snare trap injuries in Dadeldhura District, far west Nepal in early June 2020. Since the outbreak of the pandemic covid-19 there has been a serious poaching spike in South Asia with the use of snare traps prevalent. Part of #AntiSnare is keeping up to date databases and following cases through to prosecution and sentencing. While there is a watchdog element to this work we work closely with relevant authourities giving assistance where possible in the overall effort to combat wildlife crime.
