Law Enforcement

The diverse habitats around the Bazaruto Archipelago are under threat due to illegal and unsustainable fishing practices, unregulated natural resource use, and uncontrolled tourism activities. These not only threaten the biodiversity, but have resulted in considerable losses in park revenue, leading to further impoverishment of local communities.

African Parks’ is investing extensively in strengthening law enforcement to mitigate conservation threats. Needed infrastructure for park management will be constructed and renovated, while marine and terrestrial ranger patrols will be augmented in conjunction with aerial surveillance of key species and habitats.
