Rangers in the Niassa Reserve conservation area will reinforce their supervision with aerial means this month, when a light aircraft and a helicopter begin monitoring the national park’s 42,000 square kilometres full time.
Administrator Baldei Chande said that the move is intended to prevent the continuing slaughter of elephants by poachers.
Last year, more than a hundred elephants were killed by poachers in the reserve, and nine firearms recovered.Source: Rádio Moçambique
