Anti-Poaching strategies of the Cullman & Hurt Project.

Apart from the village benefits scheme, CHCWP also carries out anti-poaching activities in all the Anti-poaching by Cullman and Hurt in Tanzania, Africa.areas allocated to Robin Hurt Safaris (Tz) Ltd. Funds for anti-poaching need to be raised each year and the project has had the support of many generous donors.

There are presently three teams operating in Tanzania, each consisting of a Field Officer, his driver, a Government Game Scout and four villagers. Each team is fully equipped with a Toyota Landcruiser, tents, HF and VHF radios, GPS and uniforms. They are provided with food and salaries and are able to operate out in the bush for long periods of time.

Anti-poaching by Cullman and Hurt in Tanzania, Africa.


The Cullman and Hurt Community Wildlife Project has been operating for over 12 years in Anti-poaching by Cullman and Hurt in Tanzania, Africa.Maswa/Makao and 10 years in Burko, Niensi-Luganzo, Rungwa and Mlele blocks with much success. Since the Project started in 1990, over 770 poachers have been convictedand over 150 firearms have been confiscated and over 20,000 wire snares have been found and destroyed. The number of wire snares found is being reduced each year, which shows clearly that involving and rewarding local communities in the protection of their natural resources has great potential for success.

The Project appears to have achieved one of its major objectives in the Makao area, by almost eliminating long-line snaring. Most of the poachers are over 45 years old and the Project is focusing its efforts on educating youths on wildlife conservation as well as encouraging village elders to protect their natural resources for future generations. Most of the poachers caught by the Project Anti-Poaching teams were from villages and towns outside the Project area. This is a clear sign that the Project needs to expand its focus area and get other companies and organisations involved to cover adjacent areas.
