Mitigating the impact of illegal bushmeat trade in the Tsavo ecosystem
The illegal bushmeat trade is a serious threat to the survival of our wildlife, second only to habitat loss. Seeing the danger that this poses to our beleaguered wildlife, the Society has taken the initiative to take the challenge head-on. To facilitate the bushmeat desk, measures have been made to implement a number of solutions in some of the bushmeat hotspots in the country. The current projects focus on awareness raising and generation of alternative livelihood around the Tsavo ecosystem.
