Such stance was manifested in the end of a five-day field visit the governor made to Tombwa’s nature reserve area, aimed at finding the real difficulties faced by the communities in this locality.
The Yona Park has an area of 515,000 hectares, 20 inspectors and scant work means, thus improvements in the overall conditions are paramount for a better patrolling and inspection work.
“The place is very big and there is a need for over fifty inspectors who must be equipped with appropriate means, such as three-wheel motor-bicycles.
The Yona National Park is host to a diversified fauna, with species like zebras, gazelles, black and white rhinos, hyenas, monkeys, among others.
