The Partnership for Action Against Wildlife Crime (PAW) is a multi-agency body comprising representatives of the organisations involved in wildlife law enforcement in the UK.
It provides opportunities for statutory and non-Government organisations to work together to combat wildlife crime.
The NWCU & PAWTo make the enforcement of wildlife law more effective, wildlife crime priorities are set every two years by the UK Wildlife Crime Tasking and Co-ordination Group and supported by the Wildlife Crime Conservation Advisory Group which is chaired by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee. The NWCU produces a strategic assessment of wildlife crime every two years which is used by the Tasking and Co-ordination Group to set the wildlife crime priorities. The NWCU’s remit also extends to the dissemination of information from a wide range of organisations by assisting police forces in wildlife crime investigation.
