Together Europe can stamp out the illegal wildlife trade. Let's act now before it is too late.

Catherine Bearder MEP

Illegal wildlife trafficking endangers not only biodiversity, but also sustainable development, livelihoods and the rule of law.

Benedek Jávor MEP

Half of the Earth's wildlife has been lost in the past 40 years! We have to react now to revert this catastrophic trend.

Stefan Eck MEP

I was delighted to host the Born Free Exhibition in the European Parliament. It is vitally important that we keep the issues of illegal trade of wild animals as a top priority.

Jacqueline Foster MEP

Europe must make a step forward to protect wildlife and nature. We can't afford to lose our biodiversity.

Marco Affronte MEP

Illegal wildlife trade is a serious threat even for the global security. We need effective solutions to fight it and we need it now.

About MEPs for Wildlife

MEPs for Wildlife was established in February 2015 as a cross-party interest group at the European Parliament campaigning for the EU to step up the fight against wildlife crime.

As a group we aim to raise awareness at a European level about the threat posed by wildlife crime, which is now the fourth-largest illegal trade in the world.

We aim to do this by hosting events, engaging with experts and ultimately delivering an EU Action Plan against Wildlife Trafficking.
