Conservation of elephants in key areas of Murchison Falls Conservation Area (MFCA), Uganda
Over the last ten years, IEF has supported the construction of fourteen ranger stations, veterinary facility, and the Joint Operating Command Centre (JOCC) which coordinates all of the Park’s ranger and security operations in MFCA in an attempt to take back the park from poachers. Where ranger stations have been established, wildlife is returning and snares and leg hold traps (which are decimating many animal populations such as lions and antelope, as well as maiming and killing animals such as elephants and endangered Rothschild’s giraffe) are found and removed. In 2022 IEF is supporting the construction of additional ranger stations in the heart of poaching country where currently there is no ranger presence.
