International Technical Assistance Program - Department of the Interior

The International Technical Assistance Program (ITAP), led by the U.S. Department of the Interior with assistance from USAID, addresses wildlife trafficking in Tanzania that threatens the country’s rich biodiversity. East Africa, including Tanzania, has emerged as a major hub for wildlife trafficking due to its unique wildlife and relatively well-developed transportation infrastructure. As a result, well-armed poachers and highly organized trafficking syndicates have decimated populations of target species such as elephants, rhinos, big cats and pangolins.
