Mission Statement

The ENV Wildlife Conservation Trust (ENV USA) was established in 2014 to strengthen efforts to reduce consumption and illegal trade of wildlife. Our mission is to foster greater understanding about conservation of endangered species through partnerships with local stakeholders, and provision of expertise in support of initiatives aimed at protecting endangered wildlife.

ENV USA Strategic Programs

ENV USA focuses its activities on the following areas:

  • Facilitating opportunities for US and other international students to work in partnership with local stakeholders in Asia on specific conservation projects and activities that will directly benefit wildlife protection efforts
  • Provide expertise to local stakeholders in Asia in the areas of demand reduction, enforcement, and legislative and policy issues
  • Promote efforts to protect wildlife in Asia amongst US and international audiences
  • Support activities aimed at reducing wildlife consumption and trade in Vietnam and other Asian countries

Why Do We Do This?

The global illicit wildlife trade is among the top profitable illegal businesses, alongside drugs, weapons, and human trafficking. There are many conservation organizations currently working on this issue. However, only a few actually make a difference on the ground. Our team is proud to be among those few that make a difference on the frontline of wildlife conservation. We are strongly committed and will not rest until wildlife can be safe from illegal poaching.
