Courageous armed women saving wildlife

Zimbabwe: Illegal poaching is declining in some parts of Zimbabwe due to a group of 100% female rangers armed to save wildlife.

The group is called Akashanga, and the brave women involved save the precious animals and fight their predators armed. Interestingly, in just three years, significant success has been achieved in rescuing animals.

In 2017, a team of women-only wildlife rangers was formed, resulting in an 80% reduction in elephant poaching and deaths in Zimbabwe. The group was named Akashanga, a word in the local Shona language, meaning “brave.” The organization was formed at the behest of the International Anti-Poaching Foundation (IAPF).

On International Elephant Day on August 12, the National Geographic Channel made a short film on the subject, in which women are told during training that their lives could be lost in this mission because poachers are professional criminals and their And whatever comes between the animals has to be targeted.

It should be noted that all the women in this group are independent and they run this program themselves. She goes on patrol every day and also films the situation. It should be noted that the women have been trained by the Australian soldiers.

The majority of women in this group have been victims of domestic violence and sexual harassment. The women’s group now surveys 115 square kilometers of forest. In addition to wildlife, there are lions and rhinos in the area. However, the number of elephants is about 85,000.

Predators cleverly add food poisoning and traps in places where even small animals get injured or die. Under the plan, 1,000 women will be part of the force by 2025
