The world of otter trafficking

Dear Otter-friends,

We compiled and analysed all our findings from our investigator’s systematic surveys of online platforms in Vietnam in a paper that has now been submitted to a peer-reviewed journal for publication. As reported in our previous progress report, we found an alarming total of 3315 otter products advertised for sale during the study period. When the paper is published, we will post another update to share it with you.

Our main recommendations are for:

  • Greater monitoring, regulation and enforcement of online wildlife trade to prevent the advertising and trade of illicit wildlife. 
  • Greater scrutiny of the sourcing of live otters and otter products into Vietnam by online sellers.
  • Revision of policies and laws to hold social media and other online advertising companies accountable for enabling illegal wildlife trade.

Thank you for joining us in the effort to end otter trafficking in Vietnam.
