Research by the panellists has found that individual wildlife suffer a great deal during (illegal) trade. Despite this, a majority of discussion about IWT focuses on human communities and conservation. Based upon their evidence regarding the lack of consideration for non-human animal welfare, the panellists explore whether inclusion of non-human animal welfare concerns can contribute to reduction of illegal wildlife trade, particularly the reduction of consumer demand. They will also debate the practicalities of implementing campaigns and prevention strategies that take into account non-human animal welfare concerns.
