Running out of time: wildlife crime justice failures in Vietnam

Running Out of Time examines the fast-growing role of Vietnam as a hub for illegal wildlife trade and the country's failure to respond to the crisis. Despite the rapid proliferation of organised Vietnamese wildlife trafficking networks driving illegal wildlife trade globally, the response from the Government of Vietnam has been inadequate and disproportionate to the scale of wildlife trafficking implicating Vietnamese criminal groups. With wildlife around the world under continuing pressure to sustain illegal markets in Asia, meaningful action by Vietnam cannot come soon enough.
