Britain hails Malawi on animal conservation
British Ambassador to Malawi Holly Tett has commended Malawi for her efforts in improving animal conservation.
Tett was speaking in Liwonde when she joined the media in wild-animal translocation which is underway at the park.
“Malawi government is doing commendable work in as far as conservation is concerned,” said British ambassador to Malawi
Commenting on the translocation, Tett said such initiatives are crucial as currently poaching of animals and illegal wildlife trade are affecting tourism.
Speaking, Director for Parks and Wildlife Brighton Kumchedwa said government is complimenting African parks initiatives.
“We thank government for imposing stiff penalties on poachers and culprits in wildlife crime,” Kumchedwa said.
In his remarks, Country Director for African Parks, Patricio Ndadxera said by translocating elephants, African Parks is creating a tourism brand by repopulating Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve.
