A Talk on the Wild Side: The challenges and opportunities for forensic science in global wildlife law enforcement

06 Mar 2019

The application of forensic science to wildlife law enforcement is an area of rapid growth, due largely to increasing global efforts to tackle the illegal wildlife trade. The development of wildlife forensics presents many challenges but also fantastic opportunities to conduct novel R&D and support the establishment and implementation of forensic science in new places. 

This presentation will provide an introduction to wildlife forensic science and demonstrate its increasing impact within the international law enforcement community.
