Three things that are dear to my heart. In a professional capacity the inter connectivity of intelligence collection and human rights standards and on a more personal basis protecting the worlds wildlife.
Here is the link to an interesting article on intelligence collection when dealing with protecting wildlife and a failure to meet international human rights standards.. For an organisation as internationally renowned as WWF this is bound to make painful reading. Unfortunately, many involved in collecting intelligence do not have a good understanding of the importance of building intelligence collection on a solid human rights foundation. Unfortunately what often happens in developing countries is that costs often dictate what training is available for those involved. If you are running on a tiny budget something has to give.
If anyone is unsure of what is needed or what human rights standards apply when it comes to intelligence collection please get in touch. When it comes to helping protect wildlife we are very easy to talk to.
