Poaching is the illegal hunting or capturing of wildlife.
Poaching is a problem because it can lead to the decline of certain species, disrupt ecosystems, and undermine conservation efforts.
Poaching affects not only the targeted species but also the local communities and economies that rely on wildlife for tourism and other resources.
Anti-poaching efforts can include increased surveillance, stronger law enforcement, community involvement, and education and awareness campaigns.
There are many ways to get involved, including donating to organizations, advocating for conservation, volunteering, and supporting sustainable tourism.
