The international community has to face with the more and more threatening phenomenon of environmental crime. Environmental crime is a complex term, which takes many different forms, such as wildlife crime (including illegal wildlife trade), forest crime, illegal logging, illegal mining and illegal trade of minerals and diamonds. Wildlife crime refers to acts committed contrary to national laws and regulations intended to protect natural resources and to administer their management and use. Nowadays it is the fifth most profitable illicit trade in the world, estimated at up to 10 billion USD annually. The involvement of international organized crime groups is tend to be the biggest challenge for the national authorities in the fight against wildlife crime. In my article I would like to summarize the new trends how the international organizations are reacting to environmental crime. A couple of years ago wildlife crime was considered as a national problem. Meanwhile the states realized that dangerous international crime rings are getting involved to the illicit trade of wildlife products and living endangered species. Assessing the scale of wildlife crime is very difficult, partly because wildlife crime remains outside mainstream crime. The study considers the following issues. Firstly, I would like to answer the questions whether there is any universally accepted definition of wildlife crime. To add, how the existing international regulation with special regard to the UN Convention against transnational organized crime respond to the new challenges of environmental crime. Furthermore, via a case study regarding to the African elephants’ population I give an example how the CITES Appendixes can affect poaching and illegal trade. Finally, the new programs and view of the international organizations are described.
