The Chinese government thus decided to help one of the most affected countries, Tanzania, by donating resources and equipment worth 1.3 million dollars.
China gave Dar es Salaam government 50 vehicles to improve patrolling, which often involves guards in chases in the Savannah.
“We thank the Chinese government for this crucial support that will boost anti-poaching in our national parks and game reserves,” said Tanzania’s Minister for Natural Resources and Tourism, Lazaro Nyalandu. The vehicles are equipped with technological facilities and global positioning systems (GPS) able to provide signal to rapid response units to intervene in areas that were suspected to have been invaded by poachers.
