The project will put in place the first capacity focused on cracking wildlife smuggling in Madagascar. Focusing on the most threatened tortoise in the world, community-based patrollers will be incentivised to protect wild sites; national law enforcers will be trained in intelligence-led investigations and these techniques will be used to target smugglers who are moving wildlife out of the country. Formal collaboration between Ministries will be built to establish the foundation for sustainable national counter-wildlife trafficking capacity.
