Welcome to this week's news update

Dear TRAFFIC supporter,

The major news this week was the launch of TRAFFIC's long-term study into online sales of illegal wildlife products on e-Commerce websites in China. Ivory was the most frequently encountered product, and as a result of good collaboration with the websites concerned, offending adverts were removed on a regular basis, leading to a sustained substantial drop in their appearance. As a consequence, however, the market appears to have shifted, with social media retailing becoming much more prevalent. All in the all, the report is a strong endorsement for TRAFFIC's regular monitoring approach to wildlife trade investiagations.
