A Digital Toolkit for WWF

We've been working with The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to design and develop a new eLearning toolkit to educate policymakers, practitioners and academics about gender-dynamics within the illegal wildlife trade. The toolkit also provides a step-by-step roadmap for integrating gender into approaches to addressing illegal wildlife trade.

The new toolkit underpins an extensive report that provides the first synthesis and assessment of the gendered dynamics within the global illegal wildlife trade (IWT). It looks at gender-informed research, field evidence and concepts relating to poaching, trafficking and consumption of wildlife products, and international governance and policy.

A suite of structured lessons packed with multi-media content, interactive scenarios and knowledge tests enables practitioners to systematically bring gender analysis into their programmes, policies and interventions to address illegal wildlife trade.

The website combines data visualisation with interactive scrollytelling to explain the concepts using a dynamic and intuitive interface where the data is presented in a way that encourages exploration and natural interaction.

I also just wanted to say a huge thank you to the whole team at Soak.

Launching this platform is a big event for everyone in the team. We all feel passionately about making this initiative translate into tangible conservation success.

What started as a report is now something practical we can put out into the world. Having tools like this to hand will be a total game changer!
