Governor Richardson announces a new Criminal Justice Challenge Fund to combat the illegal wildlife trade in Africa

Governor Bill Richardson launched today The Bill Richardson Wildlife Justice Fund to combat the illegal wildlife trade in Africa. 

The Bill Richardson Justice Fund will accelerate the change already underway in many African nations to strengthen prosecutions against wildlife criminals. Its focus runs all the way from the point of arrest to the point of conviction, making sure that increasingly robust laws become the most effective deterrent against wildlife crime they can be.

By taking this approach, we will have delivered sustainable interventions in multiple jurisdictions that impact not just wildlife crime, but all crime.
