Article By: Solomon


The Department of Wildlife and National Parks has reported a surge in wildlife crime, particularly poaching, in the Ngamiland district.


Addressing the ongoing full council session yesterday, Chairman of the North West District Council, Itumeleng Kelebetseng, highlighted the alarming increase in both commercial and subsistence poaching.


Antelopes, giraffes, and elephants are among the most targeted species.


Kelebetseng noted that predators such as lions and crocodiles are also being unlawfully killed for their nails and bones, which are believed to be used in ritual practices.
