New poaching trends, lack of modern technology to effectively check such incidents and waning motivation levels among staff are some of the major challenges, according to them.
Speaking at a function, Director General of the Department of National Park and Wildlife Conservation (DNPWC) Megh Bahadur Pandey said, “We made a big achievement last year but giving it continuity is a huge challenge. We need to strengthen anti-poaching mechanisms, improve law enforcement tools and techniques,” he said.
