SWiPE LIFE (2020-2023)

The SWiPE (Successful Wildlife Crime Prosecution in Europe) project aims to discourage potential offenders by improving compliance with EU Environmental Law and increasing the number of successfully prosecuted offences, and thus ultimately reduce wildlife crime.

The SWiPE (Successful Wildlife Crime Prosecution in Europe) project aims to discourage potential offenders by improving compliance with EU Environmental Law and increasing the number of successfully prosecuted offences, and thus ultimately reduce wildlife crime. The project activities will deliver evidence baseline on European wildlife crime in the 11 project countries, boost the awareness and capacity of prosecutors, police, and selected law enforcement authorities to provide effective environmental compliance assurance, enhance cross-border knowledge exchange, and increase cooperation between investigative agencies. The project also aims to raise awareness of the negative effects of these crimes on national security, public health, and biodiversity. We would support the work of the authorities so that wildlife crime cases will not remain undetected, will be investigated, prosecuted, and will be brought before court so offenders who commit crimes damaging nature receive appropriate penalties.

The project covering 11 European countries is financially supported by the LIFE programme of the European Union with co-financing provided by the US embassy in Hungary. The project partners include several WWF offices (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, Spain, Serbia, Slovakia, Ukraine), Fauna & Flora International, TRAFFIC, the State Attorney’s Office of the Republic of Croatia, and the Croatian Judicial Academy.
