|Course summary||From the cruel slaughter of critically endangered rhinos for their horns to illegal hunting and the destruction of protected habitats, crimes involving wildlife evoke a visceral emotional response in|
|Course description||The term “wildlife crime” refers to any illegal activity involving protected species in nature.This act of killing is in fact just the most prominent of a variety of offences which supply the global demand for wildlife products. Drawing from lessons learned by urban police forces in combatting crimes such as burglary, robbery and theft, this course teaches you how to collect and analyse data about wildlife crime. It begins with a basic introduction: how this form of criminality is defined, the variety of specific offences which fall under the umbrella term “wildlife crime” and what agencies are responsible for enforcing legislation in this area. Building upon this foundation, we then explore the difficulties associated with studying wildlife crime – in particular, problems related to data limitations and biases. After that, you go on to learn the basics of crime analysis, situational prevention and problem-oriented policing so that you can link data-driven approaches to actually fighting wildlife crime. Meanwhile, the field trips and project expose you to wildlife in the Netherlands and the practical difficulties associated with protecting vast landscapes.|
