Princes William and Harry officially open 2018 Illegal Wildlife Trade Conference

Prince William Prince Harry and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta in London

Today Britain's Prince William spoke at a gathering of nonprofits, NGOs, and government officials from around the world who assembled at the 2018 Illegal Wildlife Trade Conference in London, where they heard about efforts to save animals largely at risk due to consumers thousands of miles away in Asia.

This Wildlife Financial Taskforce will initially comprise of representatives from 30 global banks and financial organisations such as Standard Chartered, HSBC, RBS and City Group, and agencies and regulatory bodies including TRAFFIC and RUSI.

Mr Museveni said that the issues of illegal wildlife trade can not be divorced from poverty and that countries must strive to get their people out of poverty through sustainable tourism, investments, trade, and industrialization, adding that the structure of the society in Africa needs to change as happened in Europe.

"By protecting these species, United Kingdom aid enables some of the world's poorest people to benefit from sustainable jobs which depend on the natural world and endangered, wild animals". The site of the event has rotated over the years; William spoke at last year's event in Hanoi, where he made a personal appeal to the Vietnamese people on behalf of the wildlife, as Vietnam is considered among the top destinations for illegal wildlife.

STROOP will form part of the IWT programme and will be screened to delegates.

"The only time criminals care about borders is when they hide behind them".

He said specialised wildlife crime intelligence and investigation units have been established in addition to the deployment of sniffer dogs at entry and exit points to curb illegal wildlife products in transit.

She claimed a 9-year-old boy groped her. Then she apologized
Facebook video taken in the immediate aftermath of the incident shows the woman calling the police outside the store. She originally said that while she was at the counter, a young black boy touched her rear end as he was leaving.

Malaysia's Anwar returns to frontline politics in big poll win
Two weeks of campaigning has seen bigwigs rallying for Mr Anwar, including Mr Mahathir and several ministers. The duo went onstage together at one campaign event, prompting wild cheers from supporters.

"Wildlife trafficking is fundamentally about the proceeds and profits".

Illegal trade in wildlife is one of the most lucrative illegal businesses in the world.

Support "parallel financial investigations", tracking dirty money to allow an arrest of low level poachers or traffickers to lead to the identification and arrest of high-ranking criminals. I have just returned from a visit to Namibia, Tanzania and Kenya.

The Egmont Centre will train, share best practice and improve global cooperation by Financial Investigation Units.

Funding consists of £3million from the UK's department for global development and £0.5million from the foreign office.

The Prince commended the ongoing conservation work various African countries and described illegal wildlife trade as an economic crime against humanity.
