A win-win for N?a Jaqna

25 March 2020 | Environment

As the custodians of local wildlife, N≠a Jaqna conservancy takes its job very seriously and believes that it creates a win-win situation by creating employment for the local community and at the same time increasing vigilance over its wildlife.
They recently increased their game guard numbers to better monitor and reduce wildlife crime in the area. The delicate balance between wildlife management, licensed hunting and the community is disturbed greatly by poaching. Therefore the game guards will fulfil an essential task, not only safeguarding the wildlife, but also by doing so, support the local conservancy and the inhabitants.
Poaching has become an ever-increasing problem and the new game guards will increase vigilance and monitoring in the conservancy.
