Uganda | New wildlife law holds severe penalties for wildlife traffickers

KAMPALA – President Yoweri Museveni has assented to the Uganda Wildlife Authority Bill 2017, which stipulates that people found guilty of trading in endangered species will be sentenced to life imprisonment.


The law also gives communities living at the periphery of Uganda National Parks a right to compensation of any damage to their property or lives that is induced by wild animals outside the Protected Areas.
