TRAFFIC is the leading non-governmental organization working globally on trade in wild animals and plants in the context of both biodiversity conservation and sustainable development.

TRAFFIC China emphasizes its warning role against IWT and its professional function in social behaviour change. Through regular market research, TRAFFIC is actively cooperating with wildlife law enforcement agencies to call for actions and carry out capacity building trainings. Via scientifically designed consumer research, TRAFFIC is driving the targeted campaigns for demand reduction and responsible consumption. Through the various work carried out in China, the TRAFFIC China hopes to explore approaches to stop IWT, ensure the sustainable use of wildlife resources and secure biodiversity, and work with various organizations domestically and internationally for biodiversity conservation.
