Catherine Bearder MEP presented her report on the EU's Action Plan against Wildlife Trafficking to the European Parliament's Environment Committee.

While praising the Commission's Plan, Mrs Bearder also came forward with her own suggestions including the introduction of a dedicated Wildlife Crime Unit at Europol, a Wildlife Crime Coordinator at the European Commission and legislation to protect species that are illegal to seize in source countries, but are not part of the CITES framework.
