ACI supports airports stopping transportation of illegal wildlife products

Posted 29 September 2016 · Add Comment

The Airports Council International (ACI) has expressed its commitment of airports joining the effort to stop transportation of illegal wildlife products.

Resolution 3 was approved this week at the 26th Meeting of the ACI World General Assembly expressing ACI's support of the "United for Wildlife Transport Task Force" campaign. 

The Resolution follows ACI's signing of the United for Wildlife Transport Taskforce Buckingham Palace Declaration on 15 March 2016, committing to supporting the fight against, and the shutting down of the illegal wildlife trade.

"ACI's social responsibility goes beyond the impact of aviation on the environment," said Angela Gittens, director general, ACI World. "We are also engaged with the aviation industry against the use of its global connectivity to support the much under reported crime of wildlife trafficking. The Resolution's approval confirms the ACI membership's commitment to the United for Wildlife Transport Taskforce Buckingham Palace Declaration signed earlier this year. ACI is dedicated to developing a practical framework towards this goal, including cooperation with international initiatives such as the Reducing Opportunities for Unlawful Transport of Endangered Species (ROUTES) partnership."
