Wildlife trafficking—the world's fourth largest black market—endangers elephants, rhinos, tigers, sharks and many other wildlife species. Poachers are often linked to international criminal networks that take advantage of weak laws and enforcement, porous borders and corrupt officials. These networks are violent and sophisticated, and their profits finance the activities of terrorist and other criminal organizations. The loss of iconic wildlife and the presence of violent elements linked to trafficking threatens nature-based tourism, an important source of revenue in many developing countries where USAID works.
