VukaNow: Combatting Wildlife Crime in Southern Africa
The rapid increase of illegal trade in wildlife is a manmade disaster that threatens the survival of endangered species in Southern Africa, and is a conservation, environmental and natural resource crisis. Meaningful engagement of communities is widely accepted as a necessary approach to combat wildlife crime but there is little agreement on how best to do it. In this series, USAID’s VukaNow activity reaches beyond the conservation sector to learn from and be inspired by others working in community engagement for social change. This resource was made possible by USAID's VukaNow activity.
