Protect Wild Animals
Brazilian Network to Combat the Wild Animal Trafficking
Around 100 species disappear from the planet every day. Wild animal trafficking is one of the main causes of this tragedy and is responsible for taking approximately 38 million specimens from nature every year. The fight against this trade must increase society's environmental awareness and that of environmental agencies about the ecological damage caused by this criminal activity that can put the public health at risk.
Renctas works with Brazilian public environmental enforcement and control agencies to strengthen environmental workers. The objective of the project is to train those officially responsible for environmental controlling and monitoring in the fight against wild animal trafficking. When we research the wild fauna traffic in each Brazilian state, we inform and give direction to the monitoring agencies responsible for stopping this trade. The development of joint initiatives strengthens the work in biodiversity conservation. Through these workshops, we help government and society work together to protect fauna – which is essential for the integration of the different institutions that work for environmental preservation. Besides strengthening the participants, we encourage them to share the training received. Your donation will finance the training of one team of environmental agents.
