EIA tracks the killing of rhinos and monitors the key actors involved in the illegal rhino horn trade. The escalating poaching prompted EIA to revitalize our work on rhinos—we are working to roll back this new surge in killing, applying the lessons of our successful campaign against Taiwan in the early 1990s.
EIA strives to hold key nations accountable for the roles they play in driving demand and facilitating the trafficking of illegal rhino horn to end this deadly trade. We use legal tools like the Pelly Amendment to pressure key nations, such as Vietnam and Mozambique, to comply with international conservation requirements in order to protect rhinos (and elephants). Relying on field evidence and desk-based research to expose illegal markets and trade, EIA works independently and alongside other partners in the fight against poaching.
