Sanctuary Security and Poaching

Poaching has severe consequences on wildlife populations.  Relentless poaching can lead to decline in species with irreversible impact on recovery in the number of animals. This can cause the collapse of species in geographical ranges, resulting to localized and eventually global extinction.

Unabated poaching will have a ripple effect on dependent species, their habitat and even the entire ecosystem. Consequently, this can have a detrimental impact on biodiversity, wildlife tourism and livelihoods.

The sanctuary rangers carry out daily security surveillance whilst conducting wildlife recordings. They also monitor and undertake de-snaring actions within the sanctuary and engage with the communities living on the peripheral in recognizing the value of wildlife and promoting peaceful  coexistence with wildlife.
