Operational Plan: 2011 - 2012

Organized crime is estimated to earn millions of US dollars worldwide from illegal activities, including hazardous waste dumping, illegal trafficking in protected wildlife, and smuggling of such restricted or banned materials as ozone-depleting substances. Curbing this illegal traffic in wildlife and environmentally regulated materials in our more dynamic and integrated global economy remains as serious a challenge as ever for our enforcement agencies.
