Welcome to the Environment Protection Section

Here at the Crime Research Investigation Agency of India (CRIA), we understand the critical importance of protecting our environment for the well-being of current and future generations. Our Environment Protection Division is dedicated to investigating and combating crimes that threaten our natural world. From illegal wildlife trade to pollution and habitat destruction, we are committed to safeguarding India's rich biodiversity and preserving its ecological balance.

Our Mission

Our mission is to uphold the laws that protect our environment and hold accountable those who seek to exploit or harm it for personal gain. Through rigorous investigation, collaboration with law enforcement agencies, and community engagement, we strive to ensure that perpetrators of environmental crimes are brought to justice and that our natural resources are conserved for the benefit of all.

Key Focus Areas

  1. Illegal Wildlife Trade: India is home to a diverse array of wildlife species, many of which are threatened by poaching and illegal trade. Our team works tirelessly to disrupt and dismantle networks involved in the illegal trafficking of wildlife and their parts, including endangered species such as tigers, elephants, and rhinoceroses.

  2. Environmental Pollution: Pollution poses a grave threat to both human health and the natural environment. Whether it's air pollution from industrial emissions, water pollution from untreated waste, or soil contamination from hazardous chemicals, we investigate instances of environmental pollution and work to hold responsible parties accountable.

  3. Habitat Destruction: The destruction of natural habitats through deforestation, urbanization, and industrial development poses a significant threat to biodiversity. We investigate cases of illegal land clearing and habitat destruction, advocating for the preservation and restoration of ecosystems vital to the survival of countless plant and animal species.

  4. Illegal Logging and Mining: Unregulated logging and mining activities can have devastating consequences for forests, rivers, and indigenous communities. Our team monitors and investigates instances of illegal logging and mining operations, working to combat environmental degradation and protect valuable natural resources.
