Specifically, you will learn about following the targets’ money to add money laundering charges to your wildlife trafficking offenses, when appropriate, and eventually seize criminal assets. In the end, you will have ideas on how to start investigating and prosecuting the leaders of the transnational wildlife trafficking criminal organizations to disrupt and dismantle those organizations.
