“Poaching is a problem in the Bangweulu Wetlands GMA, like in any other park. The GMA is the only place in the world where black lechwe can be seen. This endemic species occurs in high numbers in the park, the latest estimates are 75.000, but also lives close to human settlements. During this particular arrest, 19 carcasses were found with the poachers. All the meat has to be weighed and brought to court.”
