EP 43

Hong Kong has been identified as a hub for wildlife traffickers. In just 18 months between 2019 and 2020, five record-breaking seizures were recorded, including pangolin scales, ivory, rhino horns, and shark fins. Not only does the illegal trade threats, it also increases the risk of zoonotic diseases jumping from animals to humans. Trafficking requires significant coordination from multiple organizations and individuals across borders, however wildlife crime is not covered by Hong Kong’s Cap 455, The Organized and Serious Crimes Ordinance (OSCO). To effectively combat traffickers using our city and conserve the wildlife, sign the petition now to urge the government to treat wildlife crime under OSCO and treat it as the serious, organized crime that it is.
