Handbook on wildlife law enforcement in India launched.


New Delhi, Feb 16 (PTI) In a bid to strengthen enforcement of wildlife laws, Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh today launched a Handbook on Wildlife Law Enforcement in India.

The book has been produced with support from WWF-India and is authored by Samir Sinha, Head-TRAFFIC India, a wildlife trade monitoring network.

The handbook is a comprehensive and detailed publication on wildlife trade and crime, conceived from several discussions with senior enforcement officials and experts.

It can be used as an important resource material during trainings conducted on wildlife enforcement and other related issues.

"The handbook is a comprehensive document that highlights emerging threats from illegal wildlife trade and offers valuable information on identifying and responding to such threats," Ramesh said.
