AFEWIS Concentrates in areas where vulnerability of the crisis is high. Fieldwork entails collecting and gathering of information on poaching in Serengeti, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, selous and Arusha Game reserves. Local Tribesmen in scattered communities live in these areas AND in close proximity, that is, in and around protected areas.
AFEWIS Functionaries spend hours doing ”House to house Proforma Inquiries” on poaching and probable movement of Wild animals in people occupied areas. For instance, elephant poachers concentrate on grounds where population of this specie is in great numbers. In some cases AFEWIS spots remains of other wildlife species, such as Lions and Wild dogs. Allotted circuits with rivers, Accacia Trees and Baobab FORESTS, Shelter animals seeking refuge from poachers. This is yet another situational problem insofar as this crisis is concerned.
AFEWIS believes that security and safety of rare wildlife species and others requires the identification of vulnerable Game areas, and working FOR Probable solutions. Consequently AFEWIS ascertains that there is collusion between poachers and some unscrupulous individuals or groups at community levels. Systematic approach in handling loitering youths is non-existent, obedience to conservation rules in and around Game reserves leaves much to be desired, i.e. tree felling, Bush burning, cattle grazing, and bee keeping, inadequate patrols by Game rangers also creates a vacuum of Hunting controls.
AFEWIS undertakes to bridge the Gap of Vulnerability through education, intelligence activities, and Liaising information for rapid Deployment of Game rangers or Voluntary Groups.
