The first results of the fight against poaching in Bamingui-Bangoran Park are particularly encouraging.

After the training phase from September 2017 to January 2018 and the arrival on site of the latest equipment (vehicles, radio ...), the operationalization of the first 5 groups of rangers is effective since February 2018. The results, presented during the last interdepartmental steering committee on May 30, are particularly revealing and encouraging. In fact, between 1 February and 30 April 2018, 85 poachers were arrested, 22 hunting guns confiscated, 351 cables removed and 108 poacher camps destroyed.
