WILDLIFE FORENSICS – UTILITY OF SCIENCE IN CURBING WILDLIFE CRIME

Ms. Aditee Anand Godbole.

Abstract
„Forensis‟ is the Latin term from which the word forensic has been derived, the meaning of
which is “of or before the forum”. Its etymology can be traced back to Roman period, when the criminal charge
levied upon a person could be countered by presenting the case before a group of individuals in the public
forum. The opportunity to speak was given to both, the person accused of the crime and the victim/accuser, who
would narrate their sides of the story. The outcome of the case would then depend upon the argumentative skills
of the person and the manner of his/her delivery. In today‟s time, forensic science is that evolving branch of
science whose use in criminal investigation is increasing day by day. Right from bringing murderers to justice,
to putting wildlife criminals behind bars, forensic science plays a huge role in crime investigation. Many
criminals, who otherwise would have gone scot free, can be punished because forensic science helps in
establishing a link between the evidence found on crime scene and the suspect. Hence the role of forensic
science as an effective tool of crime resolution is increasing day by day. This paper, by citing various examples,
attempts to appreciate the use and contribution of forensic science in bringing wild life criminals to justice.

Key words: Crime, Criminals, Evidence, Forensic Science, Justice, Wildlife “Physical evidence cannot be intimidated. It does not forget. It sits there and waits to be detected, preserved, evaluated, and explained.”
