Empowering women who work to protect wildlife is central to the mission of the Global Wildlife Program (GWP) – a multi-stakeholder partnership financed by the GEF and coordinated by the World Bank. The program is dedicated to wildlife conservation, and reducing poaching, trafficking and demand for wildlife products.

This story highlights some of the outstanding women around the world who are leading the charge in combating the scourge of wildlife crime, with the help of UNDP-supported projects under the Global Wildlife Program and related initiatives.
