Turkey – Turkish PTT
Turkish PTT supports United for Wildlife
By signing the Buckingham Palace declaration, Turkish Post has committed to the protection of wildlife.
Each year hundreds of wildlife products are illegally trafficked across the planet. The global postal network is often illegally used to transport these items.
These items feed the demand and have a devastating effect on the wild populations of some of the largest and most iconic species like elephants, rhinos and tigers, as well as some lesser known species such as the pangolin.
In March 2019, Turkish Post joined as signatory to the Buckingham Palace Declaration which aims to stop this trade and to help protect rare and endangered wildlife. Turkish Post is committed to United for Wildlife, taking action to prevent the trade in illegal wildlife products and working with other industries, governments and nongovernmental organisations like the WWF to tackle this illicit trade.
By joining this international initiative, Turkish Post shows its commitment to protect wildlife and contributes to change global mindsets on this issue.
