The hunting and distribution of protected wildlife still takes place in all regions of Indonesia every year. This can be seen from the high number of wildlife crimes. In 2017 it reached more than 140 arrests of perpetrators of illegal hunting and distribution. Tigers, elephants, rhinos, primates, birds, fish, and reptiles of various types become commercial commodities for perpetrators. It is estimated that Indonesia losses Rp 9 trillion per year caused by wildlife trade. The trade of protected wildlife includes living animals, body parts and its products. The number of protected wildlife hunting and distribution is still high due to the high demand at the local, national and international markets. Usually, the wild animals are traded to be used as pet animals, traditional medicines, food ingredients, ceremonial or religious media, jewelry, or ornaments.
The other reason that wildlife trade is still happening also because the risks received by the perpetrators are still lower than the profits earned (high profit and low risk). The penalties received by the perpetrators do not cause a deterrent effect so that the recidivism rate (the perpetrators who repeat their actions after receiving imprisonment) reaches more than 20%, especially for perpetrators of high-value wildlife hunting and trafficking, such as pangolin and tigers. To expedite this illegal business, various modus operandi are developed by the perpetrators to avoid detection and law enforcement.
Conventional mode where sellers and buyers meet directly, or either using intermediaries, and even online trading mode can be easily found these days. The interrupted communication system is the modus developed by drug traffickers, and it is also applied in the case of wildlife, making it difficult to the law enforcement officials to find the key actors of the hunting and distribution of wildlife. The government has tried to prevent preemptively, preventively and repressively, but the occurrence of violations of protected wildlife is still happening.
Currently the apparatus's detection capability has increased. This is proven by the number of arrests reaching hundreds every year since 2016. Even so, the practices of illegal hunting and trading are still often occurred because the intensity of crime is still greater compared to the law enforcement efforts that have been done. Efforts against illegal trading to protect wildlife still face challenges in several ways, such as; limited ability of law enforcement officials in investigation; the lack of understanding of the prosecutors and judges in the issue of conservation of protected animals so that existing penalties have not given a deterrent effect on the perpetrators; the loopholes that hinder the effectiveness of law enforcement processes; the cooperation and coordination between law enforcement is not optimal; lack of public participation in monitoring and providing support to law enforcement officials in handling cases; customary law in the community about the use of animals; and also the lack of cooperation with other state law enforcement agencies to tackle transnational crime.
The United Nation Development Program ("UNDP") through the funding support from the Global Environmental Facility ("GEF") - in collaboration with the Directorate General of Environmental and Forestry Law Enforcement is one of the partners that supports the eradication of illegal hunting and distribution of wildlife in the form of collaborative projects with the title of Combatting Illegal and Sustainable Trade in Endangered Species in Indonesia.
