The name of STABULA derives from the italian verb “stabulare”
[der. of lat. stabŭlum “stable”] – It’s an a verb used to refer to domestic animals housed in stables.

By analogy, the term is extended and used today in the field of terraristics and associated with the concept of “keep in balance”. It is attributed to exotic animals or plants with special needs kept in terrariums or artificial ecosystems.

STABULA is a marketplace, created and designed for animals breeders, plants propagators as well as for collectors. For us the animal and environmental well-being is essential. For this reason we will make sure to enforce the rules written in our  Terms and Conditions.

For example, is now the most immediate threat to several species including elephants, rhinos, big cats like tigers, lions and cheetahs, apes, pangolins, reptiles and birds, among many others. This illegal trade is driven by demand for ivory, horn, bones, scales and other parts for carving, ornaments, luxury items, and traditional Asian medicines, trophies, wild bushmeat and even live animals for pets and zoos.

Offenses like poaching, trafficking in live or dead endangered animals, illegal logging and illegal fishing, are complex phenomena; where a variety of factors interact – cultural, social, economic and environmental – and often involve different actors. 
For most countries, combating environmental/wildlife crime is unfortunately not a priority and almost always remains overlooked and poorly understood. is time we recognize that environmental crime is now orchestrated at the same level of complexity as every other major criminal enterprise, with serious socio-economical and security implications in addition to the irreversible environmental harms caused.


The wildlife trade is one of the most important businesses on the planet, it ranks high along with trafficking in human beings, drugs and arms.Wildlife crimes are ranked the world’s fourth largest criminal activity in the world.

Many species are in danger of becoming extinct due to the taking from the wild of specimens that are sold for collectibles or as pets. In addition to deforestation caused by the illegal wood trade 23 billion dollars is the annual turnover of the illegal trade in fauna.

-23 billion dollars is the annual turnover of the illegal trade in fauna
to which must be added illegal fishing (another 36 billion)
-Illegal logging (157 billion )
-And obviously the immense volume of trade in protected species regulated by the CITES international convention, estimated for the European Union alone, at over 100 billion euros per year.

According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) “ILLEGAL, UNREPORTED and UNREGULATED FISHING (IUU) activities are responsible for the loss of 11–26 million tonnes of fish each year, which is estimated to have an economic value of US$10–23 billion. Asia, Africa, and South America together accounted for 85 percent of global catch losses to illegal seafood trade”
Worth up to USD 258 billion/year.

The amount of money lost due to environmental crime is 10,000 times greater than the amount of money spent by international agencies on combatting it – just $20-30 million.


Illegal logging creates social conflict with indigenous and local populations and leads to violence, crime, corruption, human exploitation and human rights abuses.
But the problems are not just in Africa, Asia or South America. According to various sources, American companies and American workers lose an estimated $1 billion each year due to illegal wood entering U.S. markets.
The different social, traditional and economic reasons make it very difficult to block the wildlife trade globally, and in any case this is only the tip of the iceberg of our poor relationship with the environment.

Environmental crime enriches international criminal groups and enables corruption to flourish. Fraud, counterfeiting, money-laundering and violence are often found in combination with various forms of environmental/wildlife crime. The risk involved is low compared to other kinds of trafficking, like drugs, but the profits are very high. It’s now clear that environmental crime has wide national and international security implications, but governments tend to see the problem as just an environmental issue.

As stated in the UNODC World Wildlife Crime Report 2020, “wildlife crime affects all countries through its impacts on biodiversity, human health, security and socio-economic development. Stopping the trafficking in wildlife species is a critical step not just to protect biodiversity and the rule of law, but to help prevent future public health emergencies.”
