IFAW joins Alliance to bolster “shared mission” of ending nature crime  

The Nature Crime Alliance has welcomed the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) as its latest member.   

IFAW is a global non-profit committed to helping animals and people thrive together. It works to rescue, rehabilitate and release animals, and restore and protect their natural habitats. This work is extremely relevant to the Nature Crime Alliance, which brings together actors fighting crimes that damage wildlife and habitat, such as illegal forms of logging, mining, and wildlife trade.  

Polen Cisneros, Wildlife Crime Program Manager, IFAW, said: “IFAW recognises the urgency and gravity of nature crime and is enthusiastic about aligning our efforts with the Nature Crime Alliance.  

“By working collectively, we believe we can amplify our impact, strengthen global initiatives, and pave the way for a world where nature is safeguarded from criminal activities. We look forward to contributing our expertise, resources, and passion to the shared mission of ending nature crime and preserving the rich biodiversity of our planet for future generations.”  

IFAW joins a range of actors within the Alliance that focus on animal welfare, with the Alliance Secretariat facilitating engagement between members to co-create solutions to this critical issue.  

Yulia Stange, Director of the Alliance, said: “Nature crimes such as illegal logging and wildlife trafficking threaten species and ecosystems and undermine our global biodiversity goals. IFAW is doing great work to protect animals affected by these activities, and to create systems that result in more harmonious conditions between animals and people. We are pleased they are on board and are excited by the knowledge they can share with our members.”
