The Nature Intelligence System provides governments and the private sector with cutting-edge technology to increase the detection of Illegal Wildlife Trade.
Illegal Wildlife Trade is the fourth largest criminal industry in the world valued at 23 billion dollars annually. Criminals abuse the legal pet trade to transport illegal species. Customs enforcement officers and the transport industry are responsible for policing this legal and illegal trade in live species. Distinguishing between legal and illegal wildlife is complex, timely and dangerous for officers who are expected to inspect hundreds of individual shipments daily. For example, London Heathrow handles over 28 million live species per year, equating to 77,000 individuals per day.
Nature Intelligence System provides government officials and the transport industry with a powerful tool to increase the detection of illegal wildlife trade whilst enabling the legal pet trade to function more efficiently.
