The trade in wild species is difficult to regulate, despite the presence of numerous international organizations dedicated to this cause. One such organization is TRAFFIC, which is a wildlife trade monitoring network primarily concerned with making sure that this trade does not pose a threat to the conservation of nature. Since its founding in 1976, the group has been concerned with monitoring wildlife trade activities, and their website provides detailed information on their work. First-time visitors may want to first look at the “What is TRAFFIC?” section, then proceed to the “Priority” area, which give specific material on the species and eco-regions that are of the greatest concern to the organization. As one might imagine, there are also a number of fine publications available here, including their annual reports and their journal, Traffic Bulletin.
