IMPROVING LAW ENFORCEMENT TO COMBAT ILLEGAL POACHING AND ENGAGING COMMUNITIES TO PROTECT NATURE
LAW ENFORCEMENT IMPROVEMENT
In mid-2018, SVW established its own law enforcement unit, in collaboration with Pu Mat National Park, to address the protection of released animals, as well as to secure the park’s wild populations.
After the success of the first anti-poaching team of 7 members, we employed a second unit in March 2019, to bring the total number of anti-poaching members to 16 and expanding the patrol area to a total of 950 km2.
The anti-poaching team have been working extremely hard to combat illegal wildlife poaching in and around Pu Mat National Park and uses the SMART program to monitor their results.
