Poaching is a violent crime, and has created a tragedy for elephant populations, many seriously threatened by the ivory trade.
Our anti-poaching experts undertake needs assessments and provide the appropriate training and technical assistance where it’s needed most.
IFAW has conducted anti-poaching and wildlife crime training in Cameroon and Chad, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Congo-Brazzaville, India and Bhutan. We are also working in collaboration with regional governments and NGOs to develop a wildlife enforcement network for the Horn of Africa region.
To complement other IFAW conflict-resolution and population assessment programmes, we have provided support for wildlife scouts, rangers and other anti-poaching patrols in Kenya’s Meru, Tsavo, and Amboseli National Parks, Malawi’s Liwonde National Park, and Manas National Park in Assam, India.
