: New study raises alarm over trade in bushmeat.

An alarm has been raised over increased paoching due to high demand of giraffe meat due to its size and probably cultural factors,the Kws should up it's game to make sure that poaching is discouraged.i think Kws should put officers and systems in place especially near where these poachers enter into a game reserve,may be there should be alarms indicating the presence of danger in animals,animals should be protected in all manners and those who are caught violating their rights be held responsible.

      @peter_kamau if we are not careful we will loose most of our world life to poachers who look for easy money from selling parts( tusks) of the animals or even worse flesh.

          To stop the poaching of wildlife for meat, officials need to address multiple complex issues.

                Bushmeat has cultural ties we need to find ways to educate people to protect wildlife and give alternative food sources.

                  This new study raises a crucial alarm about the illegal trade in bushmeat and its connection to poaching, particularly driven by the demand for giraffe meat. It underscores the urgency for Wildlife Service officers to step up their efforts to discourage and prevent poaching. Implementing stronger surveillance near game reserves, along with alert systems, is a practical approach to safeguarding animals and holding violators accountable. Protecting wildlife is essential, and addressing cultural factors contributing to this issue is equally important. #WildlifeProtection #StopPoaching 🦒🌿🚫

                      @chris_ngatia people are risking our wildlife and their lives too. Is the meat even looked at by the right people for safety?? Some animals in the wild are sick with no medical treatment and yet they put their lives on the line.
