"This report highlights recent activities and initiatives that DHS has put forth to address wildlife and natural resources trafficking--illegal activities that pose both a conservation and national security threat to the United States. Through its engagement with the Presidential Task Force on Wildlife Trafficking, DHS has taken steps to further coordination with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Office of Law Enforcement and has worked to implement the National Strategy for Combating Wildlife Trafficking. Further, DHS has aligned its resources to meaningful activities designed to address and eliminate the threat from these unlawful activities. DHS remains strongly committed to combating wildlife trafficking, assisting foreign nations in building capacity to combat wildlife trafficking, and working with its partners to combat transnational organized crime."
