Zambia | Poaching implicated in falling lechwe populations in 2 NPs

LUSAKA, Feb. 1 (Xinhua) -- A survey conducted by wildlife authorities in two national parks in Zambia has revealed a drop in the population of the lechwe, an official said on Friday.

The Department of National Parks and Wildlife, with the support of the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) and the International Crane Foundation (ICF), conducted a survey last November to establish the lechwe population in the Blue Lagoon National Park and the Kafue Game Management Area.
