Uganda wildlife Authority has strongly condemned the continued illegal killing of wildlife.
This follows the killing of 6 Lions in the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park which are believed to have been poisoned.
The Authority’s communications manager Bashir Hangi says killing of wildlife does not only impact negatively on the country’s tourism, but also revenue generation which supports conservation and community work in protected areas.
He assures the public that the authority will continue to strengthen the protection of lions and other wildlife in Uganda and will pursue this matter to its logical conclusion.
