The Wildlife Ambassador Program (WAP)
WAP launched in 2018 with the aim to get more community members and law enforcement officers involved in wildlife rescue, and humane human-wildlife conflict resolution.
WAP’s Mission is to improve wildlife conflict response and reduce poaching, trafficking and trade by providing law enforcement and community with relevant tools and information.
WAP’s Vision is a country where people treat wildlife with respect and dignity, with minimal human-wildlife conflict.
- Provide training to governmental and non-governmental personnel on the front lines of wildlife conflict, poaching and trafficking.
- Improve response time for reaching and treating wild animals intercepted in wildlife pet trade.
- Provide basic knowledge on identification, handling, transport and emergency response of injured wildlife.
