Written by: Staff

New Delhi, July 8 (UNI) An international network for monitoring of wildlife trade, which had packed out of India in 2000, has decided to resume its operations in the country.

The NGO Trade Record Analysis of Flora and Fauna in Commerce (TRAFFIC) is a joint conservation programme of WWF and IUCN-The World Conservation Union- working globally to ensure that trade in wild animals and plants does not become a threat to the conservation of nature.

The India office of TRAFFIC will start working in August, WWF officials here said.

The main task of TRAFFIC, which was founded in 1976, is to monitor and investigate wildlife trade and provide the information to diverse organisations worldwide as a basis for effective conservation policies and programmes as a part of WWF's global network.
