Why The Anti-Poaching Campaign Is Ineffective – IPP Media
Special Report from IPP Media:
The Tanzania Elephant Management Plan 2010-2015 says Tanzania should have a naturally functioning elephant population if it ensures that their habitat, corridors, dispersal areas are secured, and reduces human-elephant conflict.
The plan published by the Tanzania Wildlife Research Institute also calls for enhanced benefit sharing, effective law enforcement, and improved knowledge and its application to achieve the goal.
Under the present situation this is not likely to happen because people believe that they have been short-changed. People interviewed by this paper on the plan are asking, why with the available scientific, technical and indigenous knowledge, authorities are failing to conserve the elephants and to fight poaching.
