Welcome to this week's news update

Dear TRAFFIC supporter,

Although little to report this week, that doesn't mean it hasn't been a busy one. Behind the scenes, activity had been high building up to two key meetings taking place in Kasane, Botswana, next week: the African Elephant Summit follow up meeting and the Kasane Conference on Illegal Wildlife Trade. In 2014, world governments met in London, UK, and made a public Declaration that they were up to the challenge and committed to end the scourge of illegal wildlife trade. A year later, Kasane provides the venue for those governments, and others, to show that they are able and willing to turn those words into action. The outcomes of both meetings will be reported here next week: watch this space!
