The Alliance brings together all elements of civil society, including interested companies, foundations, and non-profit organizations.
On March 3, 2016, the Alliance announced 16 companies across a variety of sectors that made early commitments to combat wildlife trafficking. Leading the way in the e-commerce sector is Google, eBay and Etsy; Ralph Lauren for the fashion industry; for the jewelry sector, Tiffany & Co., Signet and the Berkshire Hathaway companies, Richline Group and Rio Grande; LiveAuctioneers.Com in the auction industry; for the travel industry, JetBlue, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Natural Habitat Adventures, and the Adventure Travel Trade Association. Discovery Communications has also stepped up, committing to using their networks and programming to educate consumers about the issue. The Bronx Zoo and other members of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums will educate their visitors, which number over 180 million each year.
A number of these companies are already leaders in their sector, having previously adopted policies and procedures that align with the goals of the Alliance, and have committed to coordinate early activities and events. We are now recruiting additional companies in a number of sectors to join us in our efforts to reduce the purchase and sale of illegal wildlife products in the U.S. Click here to learn more!
