Law Enforcement and Government Agencies, Inter-Governmental Organizations

We collaborate with law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad, providing confidential information and various intelligence products to support their investigations into environmental/wildlife crime, domestically and internationally.

In the U.S. we routinely collaborate and share information with Homeland Security Investigations/HSI, Fish & Wildlife Service, NOAA, and other government agencies. These collaborations led to important arrests in the U.S.

We have been collaborating and sharing information with public prosecutors and authorities in Mexico, Bolivia, Peru, The Netherlands, Thailand, Vietnam, Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa, among others. Most of these collaborations led new investigations and significant arrests

We also have collaborations with inter-governmental organizations such as UNODC and CITES.


Academic Institutions

Collaborating with leading academic institutions in the US and around the world is very important for Earth League International. This partnership empowers us to access cutting-edge research, leverage expert insights, and foster innovation, enabling more effective strategies and solutions in our ongoing fight against environmental crime and the preservation of our planet’s precious resources.

We collaborate with the Florida International University (FIU) in Miami, the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, and the TraCCC research center within the Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University in D.C., among others.
