Drs. Neil Carter (School for Environment and Sustainability) and Abigail Jacobs (School of Information) combine multiple data sources to identify patterns of illicit trade of turtles and pangolins native to Pakistan. They will analyze these animals’ habitats and populations, poaching intensity, trade patterns, and underlying trade networks. They will also determine how the illicit trade network changes in response to shifts in regulation and enforcement, ecological dynamics, market demand, and institutional actors.
