OLX Group has announced it is joining the Coalition To End Wildlife Trafficking Online. The Coalition brings together leading NGOs TRAFFIC, WWF, and IFAW and global tech companies including Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Tencent, in a partnership to stop wildlife traffickers from operating via online products and platforms.
Recent years have seen a rise in the buying and selling of illegal wildlife products such as elephant ivory, tiger cubs, pangolin scales and rhinoceros horn. The Coalition aims to prevent the sale of these illegal products through cooperation between members.
“At OLX Group we are constantly looking for ways to help our users trade safer and smarter. Joining the Coalition to End Wildlife Trafficking Online is an exciting way for us to do more to protect the precious biodiversity that is so important to sustain life on our planet” affirms Chris Sherwood, Head of Policy OLX Group.
