Wildlife Trafficking Data

The ROUTES Dashboard was an interactive website providing graphics on wildlife trafficking through airports between 2009 and 2021. The Dashboard’s graphics are derived from open source wildlife seizure data collected by C4ADS under the ROUTES Partnership.

When the ROUTES Partnership came to a close in 2021, the data and functionality from the ROUTES Dashboard were transferred into TRAFFIC’s Wildlife Trade Portal. For the latest data on wildlife trafficking in the air transport sector Visit the Wildlife Trade Portal


The ROUTES Dashboard contains data for wildlife trafficking in air transport between 2009 and 2021, with user functionality such as:

  • Country Profile maps, offering an overview of the wildlife seizures made in airports in each country
  • A flight Route Risk tool, showing the number of wildlife trafficking instances across certain flight routes

Customizable visualizations and graphics of over 13 years of aggregated wildlife seizure data globally
