Abstract: Biodiversity has a high ecological value and unique significance of the times. To strengthen the construction of ecological civilization, we should pay attention to biodiversity conservation. As an important part of biodiversity, the situation of the criminal infringement on wild animals is more serious, and there is an urgent need for effective regulation by criminal law. In order to meet the needs of the criminal law protection of wild animals, a scientific and well-developed criminal sanction system for wildlife crimes should be established. At present, the adjudication of punishment for wildlife crimes is mild, there is a lack of ecological restorative punishment measures, the application of occupational prohibition orders is not strong, and the calculation rules for the amount of fines is too broad. This paper believes that we should strictly grasp the applicable standards of probation, further improve and implement the application of occupational prohibitions and ecological restorative punishment measures, and specify the rules for calculating the amount of fines.
Key words: Wildlife, criminal penalty, non-penalty punishment, restorative justice
