Transnational Collaborations—Looking at each of the stakeholders in turn, leads into a discussion in this chapter of the transnational collaborations to curb wildlife trafficking. The first approach explored is the species collaborations that focus on protection of one or a group of species. Then, regional collaborations are equally detailed such as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations–Wildlife Enforcement Network (ASEAN–WEN) and the South Asia Wildlife Enforcement Network (SAWEN). The financial, transportation, and technology sectors have formed industrial collaborations also aiming to tackle the illegal wildlife trade. Next global collaborations are considered—United for Wildlife and the International Consortium on Combating Wildlife Crime (ICCWC). The latter is made up of INTERPOL, CITES, the World Customs Organisation (WCO), the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), and the World Bank. Part of the global collaborations are the series of high-level conferences that have taken place in London, Kasane, and Ha Noi since 2014. Finally, Interpol’s Environmental Security Unit, the ultimate collaboration, is looked at in detail. After each of these cooperative efforts has been described, there will be a critical evaluation of what limitations and challenges these efforts face and proposals as to what other alternatives might be tried.
