An interesting approach to poaching...

An Indian National park has adopted a new technique that seems to be working pretty well...

That is interesting Chris. We certainly share many similarities with India.

I do think that we can learn from what is happening in other parts of the world. They could also learn from us.

I suppose one of the biggest challenges with Kruger is it's vast size plus porous borders.

The defense force is there to protect the borders, but they are not trained in the same way as the rangers. They are unable to read the bush and work in the bush effectively. They also do not have the same freedom to act independently without directions from a commanding officer. Ideally there should be a small permanent force trained specifically in bush technique.

I am hoping that the change in government in Zim, will bring greater economic stability. This will lessen the need for poaching.
