The Interior Department is looking for experts to help the Obama administration bust up international crime rings.
Interior’s Fish and Wildlife Service on Monday will publish a notice seeking nominees to serve on a new outside Advisory Council on Wildlife Trafficking.
The department is one of the agencies working on the anti-poaching initiative that President Obama announced July 1 in Tanzania.
It’s aimed at cracking down on trafficking of elephant tusks, rhino horns and other wildlife.
The outside advisers to Interior will provide recommendations and guidance to the wider Presidential Task Force on Wildlife Trafficking.
