Poaching in the Serengeti region is predominantly made up of hunting for bushmeat. The hunting tactics adopted by poachers focus specifically on snares set up throughout the reserve in the hopes of capturing passing wildlife. While the anti-poaching scouts work tirelessly to patrol for snares and remove them safely, animals that come into contact with these snares incur detrimental injuries.
