Wildlife crime, poaching, and commercial killing are on the rise and concerned hunters are banding together to stop it. The plight of elephants, rhinos, and other animals are out of our daily experience, yet public opinion matters and concerned hunters are organizing for international action. You may not be able to attend the conference, yet it only takes a click to stay informed.
Hunters of the world will gather at the 2014 General Assembly of the CIC in Milan, Italy for a historic World Summit on the 24th of April 2014. The Summit is organized as an urgent response by hunters all over the world, who are concerned by the new dimensions which wildlife crime (poaching and illegal trade of wildlife) is taking, including an increase in the prevalence of organized crime. This new face of wildlife crime requires an overhaul of the current management actions. Together, hunters as a united force are able to substantially support enforcement efforts against wildlife crime at all levels. Hence, the Summit will connect and bring together the leaders of hunting and wildlife crime enforcement agencies, each sharing the objective of stopping wildlife crime. The meeting will be convened on April 24th, 2014 in Milan.
