Speaking at a Grand Ranger Pass Out Parade at the Hwange National Parks, the Minister of Environment and Natural Resources Management, Cde Francis Nhema, said to aid in the protection of rhinos within the intensive protection zone, the Parks and Wild-life Management Authority has received eight  motor bikes and four  land rovers vehicles from Save Australia.

Cde Nhema said the same organisation upgraded the radio communication system which will make it easier for rangers to execute their duties.

 

He said the government has also formulated plans for the sustainable management of wildlife which is under threat from poachers and illegal hunters.

Cde Nhema urged rangers to shun corruption and stop conniving with poachers.
