Joint Intelligence Unit

Anti Poaching Efforts

Anti-poaching efforts for the Grumeti Fund have been escalated by the establishment of an anti-poaching Joint Intelligence Unit – a collaboration between the Grumeti Fund Law Enforcement Department and the Tanzanian Wildlife Management Authority (TAWA).

The small covert Joint Intelligence Unit works behind the scenes to obtain information about poacher movements from a network of informers living in the villages and surrounding communities. This information ensures that scouts are pro-active in their operations as they strive to apprehend poachers entering the concessions rather than engaging and arresting them after wildlife has already been killed.
