Throughout Asia, the illegal wildlife trade damages ecosystems and threatens species. Wildlife traffickers operate within and across countries, with Thailand often serving as a trans-shipment point. In response, USAID supports Thailand’s participation in a regional anti-trafficking network that trains police, customs officials, national park personnel, and judiciary bodies while strengthening cross-border, multi-agency cooperation.
