Chapter 12: Criminological perspectives on environmental crime
This chapter examines the general features of environmental crime before providing a specific overview of crimes against protected wildlife. Three distinctive features of the illegal wildlife trade are discussed: (1) opportunistic poachers; (2) stages of distribution; and (3) the role of corruption. This chapter argues that altering the consumers’ perceptions of the value and meaning of wildlife products is key to long-term enforcement against the illegal wildlife trade.
