This is also to gauge the effectiveness of the training conducted by JWM, thus improving the outreach and impact of each awareness program created. JWM also uses case tracking as a way to identify gaps and loopholes in the current legislation. Besides that, JWM conducts research related to legislation and prosecution using the latest available technologies in wildlife conservation to supplement prosecution work in court.
