Help Australia Protect Wildlife
Australian Customs plays a vital role in combatting the illegal smuggling of wildlife both in and out of Australia. Australia is home to many unique and exotic species that are in high demand both domestically and on the international market.

The Customs Hotline is a community participation program which draws on the knowledge and expertise of people living and travelling throughout Australia to report potential or actual illegal activities.

If you see or hear of any person or group involved in selling wildlife or poaching wildlife in National Parks or wilderness areas contact the Australian Customs Hotline immediately.

ProFauna Indonesia is a non-government organisation working for the protection of wild animals and their habitat. Formerly known as KSBK, it was established in Malang City, East Java in 1994 and has offices in Jakarta and Bali, with members throughout the country.

ProFauna is the only animal protection organisation in Indonesia which has a membership system, with members making a significant contribution to voluntary activities and enabling the organisation, despite limited staff, to achieve a great deal more than otherwise would be possible. The majority of ProFauna’s work involves campaigning for the protection of wild animals, investigation into the trade in wild-caught animals and animal rescue, all using non-violent means.

ProFauna Indonesia has conducted numerous investigations into the trade and exploitation of Indonesian wild animals.

Established in January of 2005, the Wildlife Crimes Monitoring Unit runs the national Wildlife Crimes Hotline, a toll-free number that was established to provide a mechanism for the public to report wildlife crimes. Reports are quickly passed on to the appropriate functional agency by ENV, after which the monitoring unit tracks each case through to its conclusion with special attention focused on the disposition of the animals or animal parts, and punishment administered to the subjects in each case. Sources are contacted and advised in detail as to the outcome of the case that he/she reported. Cases are then documented and filed, as well and recorded on ENV’s Wildlife Crimes Database.

The main aims of the program are to:

  • Encourage public participation and support in efforts to combat the illegal trade of wildlife
  • Support enforcement efforts by government agencies
  • Document crimes and identify factors that contribute to the wildlife trade
