Conflict Officers

Our Conflict Officers programme employs 16 local people across 12 villages in the Ruaha landscape to respond to any conflict incidents and work with households to prevent such instances happening. This provides an important source of wildlife-related income to those officers and their families, while also reducing the risks of wildlife presence for households they work with. They collect monthly data on livestock depredations and trends which helps to inform us of conflict hotspots and allows us to plan mitigation measures. 

All of the Conflict Officers are hired directly from the local communities and the areas they cover are within village land.
