Serengeti Poachers Beware! Sniffers dogs and aircraft are looking for you

According to a recent DAILYNEWS article, Tanzanian National Parks (TANAPA) has started using sniffer dogs as well as aircraft to bolster anti-poaching efforts in Serengeti National Park. You can read the entire article here:

We commend TANAPA for ramping up its efforts to fight poaching. That said, if a commercial highway is allowed to bisect the Serengeti it will create a direct conduit for poachers to get in and out of the park quickly and take TRUCK LOADS of poached game, including elephants and the rare and endangered black rhino which has recently been reintroduced to the park.
Friends of Serengeti and its member companies stand firmly opposed to any attempt to build a commercial highway through the Serengeti. If you agree, show your support by booking your next safari with one of our members. Or, if your company offers trips to the Serengeti, join Friends of Serengeti today.
