Tanzania | Anti-poaching efforts cut annual number of elephant deaths in Ruaha NP from 52 to 3

ARUSHA, Tanzania, March 15 (Xinhua) -- Tanzania's sustained efforts to fight poaching have cut the number of elephants killed in the Ruaha National Park from 52 in 2012 to just three last year, park conservators said on Friday.

Agricola Lihiru, head of security at the park, attributed the sharp fall in poaching incidences within the protected area to such efforts as deployment of more game warders and stern legal action against poachers.
