A program was organized for the staff of the WPD to identify the problems faced by the staff during rescue operations. There was also an opportunity to share ideas on ways to make the rescue operations more efficient and safer.
The capacity building program was attended by more than 40 field staff engaged in rescue operations. All attendees were inteersted in finding ways to both save people’s lives and protect the wildlife as well. The greatest problems occur when wildlife comes into contact with human habitations.
The WPD expressed some of the challenges they face including having limited equipment, vehicles and training. Wildlife SOS is trying to help some of these challenges so they can be more effective in the field.
