Lutte anti braconnage, Activities and meetings Activities and meetings

Every year, between July and October, the Bamingui Bangoran National Park is hit by major floods of all its rivers: a real challenge to continue anti-poaching activities in this protected area.

In September, the rangers of Bamingui Bangoran National Park, as part of their ongoing training, learned about watercourse crossing techniques: the «back and forth» method and «utilitarian swimming». The floods that characterize this region each year often require ranges to cross very deep rivers to reach the patrol areas. It is therefore crucial that they learn to safely cross them to continue the fundamental anti-poaching work.
