The Fight Against Wildlife Trafficking—The illegal wildlife trade is nestled between law enforcement, conservation/environmental protection, and the economy. This unique position means that there are multiple, often times competing, stakeholders determining the ways in which wildlife trafficking can be combated. This chapter presents the agendas that collide when compromise must be reached between criminalisation and regulation. The perspectives and hurdles faced by each of the actors involved will be detailed, i.e., police, customs, scientists, NGOs, and government officials among others.
