Joint Conservancy Anti-Poaching Team of Northern Rangelands Trust
Support to Joint Conservancy Anti-Poaching Team of Northern Rangelands Trust (NRT)
The joint anti-poaching team are armed rangers that protect the wildlife and communities of Northern Rangelands Trust, the gold standard of community conservancy programs. The teams have led to significant declines in elephant poaching throughout NRT and reversed the trend which had been steadily increasing since 2010. The team has also helped improve the civil and government security response to the theft of livestock and highway banditry as the same people are frequently involved in all three activities.
