Poaching for elephant and rhinoceros has reached its highest levels in recent history, undermining the recovery observed in the last three decades. In addition, wildlife trafficking concerns many more animal and plant products such as corals, reptiles, pangolins, plants and animals used for medicinal purposes, timber, charcoal and bushmeat.
Through illegal wildlife trade, governments lose important sources of revenues; while its links with corruption and illicit money flows, for instance through money laundering, undermine the rule of law and good governance. At the same time, weak governance structures further facilitate these crimes. Wildlife trafficking also fuels instability in regions such as Central Africa, where militia groups use the revenues generated to fund their activities.
In January , the UN Security Council for the first time agreed on targeted sanctions against individuals supporting armed groups or criminal networks in the Central African Republic and the DRC through the illicit exploitation of wildlife and wildlife products. The EU has been at the forefront of the fight against illegal wildlife trade, both domestically and globally, over the last decade.

The Commission works closely with the EU Member States to constantly strengthen the enforcement of those rules. In , the Commission adopted a series of Recommendations for strengthening the enforcement of EU wildlife trade rules in the Member States.
These Recommendations include adopting national action plans for enforcement, imposing sufficiently high penalties for wildlife trade offences and using risk and intelligence assessments to detect illegal and smuggled wildlife products. The Recommendation also addresses the need for increased public awareness about the negative impacts of illegal wildlife trade and for greater co-operation and exchange of information within and between Member States as well as with third countries and relevant international organizations e.
