Illegal wildlife trade’s ‘dirty money’ targeted by big banks
Leading global banks and financial institutions have pledged their commitment to a financial task force to uncover laundering of profits derived from the illegal wildlife trade. Alongside the task force, there are also calls for a greater focus on the role corruption plays in facilitating the poaching of fauna and flora. There have also been warnings that efforts to combat the illegal wildlife trade should not focus too heavily on large, charismatic mammals like elephants and rhinos.
