Ending illegal wildlife sales.
As part of our Illegal Wildlife Trade programme VOICES FOR MOMOS was a campaign launched in November 2017 in response Myanmar’s elephant poaching and skinning crisis.
It united conservation organisations, businesses, government, individuals and celebrities to use their voice to call for the end of illegal wildlife sales in Myanmar.
Watch our video showing the campaign highlights below.
"Awareness of the skinning crisis is raised."Though elephants are culturally revered across Myanmar few people were aware of the fact they are being killed for their skin. Voices for Momos aim was to ensure the Myanmar public understood what was happening and used their voice to speak up against it.
"More and varied voices are brought to the table to debate on illegal wildlife trade."The illegal wildlife trade is the biggest threat facing Myanmar’s wildlife. In order to address the issue, there needs to be action at all levels. By uniting government agencies, corporations, civil society and celebrities we are powerful enough to end illegal wildlife trade across Yangon and ultimately across the whole of Myanmar.
"The sales of illegal wildlife products in Yangon's key markets ends."By ending the sales of illegal wildlife products in keys markets in Yangon we will raise the profile of illegal wildlife sales and create the momentum needed to end sales across the country.
We are proud to announce that Aung La Nsang, Myanmar's most famous international athlete, is WWF-Myanmar new Ambassador Fighting Wildlife Crime.
