Following the London Conference on Illegal Wildlife Trafficking, the UK has established an Illegal Wildlife Trade Challenge Fund. The total Fund is about £4m and is now open to bids. The Fund supports action in three areas: developing sustainable livelihoods for communities affected by illegal wildlife trade; strengthening law enforcement and the role of the criminal justice system; and reducing demand for wildlife products. If you are interested in applying for funding, please submit your expressions of interest by 30 May to illegalwildlifetrade@defra.gsi.gov.uk.
