Poaching facts

Most international wildlife conservation agreements and many national species protection laws do not use the word poaching; instead, they simply describe what actions are prohibited. In contexts in which transportation of bushmeat was problematic, it was consumed directly by the household or distributed in the local village. Poverty forces people to manage their resources as carefully as possible. Because of the inconsistency of their income, the poor must utilise saving and borrowing strategies so that they can put food on the table in difficult times. We have two objectives in this paper. While livestock are liable to drought and disease and are not a risk-free investment, they may concurrently be operating as a safer means of investment with a higher likelihood of return for rural households that lack other venues. While difficult to measure, effort should be made to integrate capability deprivation into conservation strategies Duffy et al. One-dimensional interpretations of this household's status could be highly erroneous as the household would likely be deemed absolutely or moderately poor. Results here show that a higher percentage of poachers used their poaching income to supplement their non-poaching income rather than as a sole means of primary income.

Questions included objective measures related to household income and assets, livelihood strategies, and other socio-economic livelihood indicators. While difficult to measure, effort should be made to integrate capability deprivation into conservation strategies Duffy et al.

For others, the financially better off, they need to be incentivised to an extent that will allow them to extend beyond their current capabilities.

Results here seem to suggest that such a natural bank account, in a region where more modern banks are inaccessible, may be a key determinant for households to emerge out of absolute or moderate poverty conditions.

But few studies have explored whether this is actually the case. But the much larger size of the Ruaha-Rungwe makes it far costlier to patrol and manage. The project implemented a management plan in which legally harvested bushmeat was sold to local communities.
