Law Enforcement & Tigers

The project's law enforcement strategy is focused on teams of rangers who rotate between ranger stations situated at strategic locations within the Seima Protection Forest (SPF).

Law enforcement efforts have concentrated primarily on preventing logging and encroachment. However a specific anti-hunting team, drawn from existing patrol staff, conducts off-road/foot patrols specifically targeting illegal wire snares that pose a particular threat to Tigers and their prey.

A comprehensive monitoring system enables SPF managers to maximize patrol efficiency through the use of an adaptive and flexible law enforcement strategy. This can be modified as the nature of the threats to biodiversity evolve, and is based on accurate and timely information drawn from a variety of sources.
