Combating wildlife crime (B7-0013/2014)

  Pino Arlacchi (S&D), in writing. − I fully support this motion because wildlife crime constitutes a threat to the welfare of the animals and to the conservation of the animal and plant species concerned, putting the local ecosystems as a whole at risk. Furthermore, illicit wildlife trafficking often involves transnational organised criminal networks and is used as a source of revenue with an annual turnover of at least USD 19 billion. This is why tackling wildlife crime requires a coordinated global response at the highest political level and between enforcement agencies. Moreover, an EU plan of action against wildlife crime and trafficking needs to be established and effective judicial systems developed in order to better combat this crime at local, national and regional level.
