According to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), elephant ivory, rhino horn, and tiger and pangolin products are among the top wildlife items illegally traded worldwide, especially in Southeast Asia and China. An effective response from anti-financial crime professionals to preventing and combating wildlife trafficking requires robust information sharing, leveraging partnerships with law enforcement agencies and regulators, and training staff on common typologies to strengthen risk-based monitoring.
