CINTOC is a a strategic intelligence organization made up of experienced investigators, analysts and advisors. CINTOC provides innovative solutions to governments, industries, and communities fighting crime and corruption. Our unique approach attacks the very systems that allow illegal networks – from rogue states to wildlife smugglers – to thrive. We work hard to create alliances between groups facing a common threat that allow us to more effectively advocate for change at the highest levels of government. In addition, we support law enforcement partners to take direct action against crime and corruption.
Stop Ivory is an independent non-government organisation which aims to protect elephants and stop the ivory trade by implementing the Elephant Protection Initiative. Currently, the EPI – with the support of its partners – provides the only end-to-end global policy solution to end the ivory trade and the poaching of Africa’s elephants for ivory. In 2010, by way of a political consensus, all 38 African Elephant Range States (countries where elephants naturally exist) agreed to an African Elephant Action Plan that committed them to working together to protect the continent’s elephants and crack down on trafficking. In February 2014, leaders from Botswana, Chad, Gabon, Ethiopia and Tanzania, galvanised a crisis response to implement that plan, launching the Elephant Protection Initiative (EPI).
