Steve Galster, Founder, Executive Director of Freeland & Chief of Party for the ARREST Program, presenting on the achievements of ARREST at the closing press conference. Sept. 2016
Yesterday, ARREST partners released results of our 5 year, USAID-sponsored program which had 3 successful pilot projects that are set to scale across the region. We saved endangered tigers from poachers in a secret location. We reduced purchases of ivory in China. And we helped start a global wildlife crime task force that is giving criminals a run for their money. For more information on the ARREST program: www.freeland.org/arrest.
Thank you to USAID and our partner and longtime friend Freeland for spearheading the ARREST program and galvanizing a strong regional team to combat wildlife trafficking and protect our natural heritage. Congratulations to Freeland and all the ARREST partners!
Wildlife Alliance’s Kouprey Express Mobile Environmental Education Team and Wildlife Rapid Rescue Team were proud to be a part of the ARREST program, working on-the-ground to reduce the consumption of endangered species through awareness raising and public engagement activities. #SaveSouthernCardamoms #StopKillingElephants #EndIllegalWIldlifeTrade #CambodiaNationalParks #WildlifeAlliance #CambodiaRangers #SuwannaGauntlett #WildlifeAllianceCambodia អង្គការសម្ព័ន្ធមិត្តសត្វព្រៃ Wildlife Alliance
