TORS: DEVELOPMENT OF A WILDLIFE AND FORESTRY CRIMES INVESTIGATIONS AND PROSECUTION MANUAL

Subject: Type of Contract: Organisation Contract
Contracting Authority: ZPWMA
Duration: 20 Days
Application Deadline: 5 April 2020

1. Background
Zimbabwe is rich in flora and fauna which need to be protected. Appropriate conservation practices need to be implemented to ensure sustainable utilization of these resources. However, the country faces multiple threats in the protection of wildlife and the environmental heritage. Such threats include deforestation, poaching, illicit wildlife trade and the adverse effects of climate change. About 40% of Zimbabwe is covered by woodlands and forests. According to the Forestry Commission, the rate of deforestation has accelerated from 1000ha per annum in the 1990s to 327,000 ha per annum (1.9%) between 2000 and 2010. Deforestation is the highest driver of land degradation and habitat loss in Zimbabwe.

Poaching has become more and more prevalent due to the high demand for wildlife products such as rhino and elephant horns as illicit trade in wildlife is fast becoming a global underground business. Zimbabwe has lost significant revenue as a result of poaching in recent years. The overall economic loss from this activity has been estimated to be between US$ 99-100 million between 2009 and 2016. Furthermore, such illegal hunts pose a threat to wildlife populations and are driving threatened species to extinction.

Zimparks guns down hippo in Nyanyadzi

August 31, 2017August 31, 2017
Inset from Zimpapers. THE Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority last week shot dead a hippopotamus that was damaging winter wheat in Nyanyadzi. The hippo, which had a calf, is believed to have escaped from Save Conservancy. ZPWMA ordered the shooting of the hippos after traditional leaders in the area reported that it was damaging crops and endangering lives. ZPWMA officer, Mr John Danfa, said they were still hunting for the calf which is believed to have found habitat along Save River. “Usually hippos move up and down rivers during the rainy season. We believe the two escaped from Save Valley Conservancy. They were both females and they do not usually click if there is no male. “They are believed to have separated. We received reports from traditional leaders in Hot Springs and Nyanyadzi that these hippos were feeding on wheat and crops in their fields.” “People’s lives were endangered so the authorities ordered its killing. The first time we attempted to kill it, it was in the company of so many cattle and could not do anything. Our officer teamed up with villagers to track it until last week when it was shot down in Nyanyadzi”. The officer is said to have fired 12 shots before the hippo died. The meat was shared by villagers. One of the villagers in Dirikwe village, Mr Tapiwa Munyati, said: “This hippo was becoming a threat to human lives in the area. It was being spotted near homes at night. “There are vegetable gardens along one of Save River’s tributaries where it was being spotted.“We were told that hippos do not like light and the danger was that lives would have been lost.” “A villager survived death by a whisker recently when the hippo strayed into his homestead.“He went out of his house to investigate when his dogs were barking. He had a torch and the hippo advanced towards him. “Fortunately he managed to escape the attack and notified other villagers and the village head. We are appealing to the responsible authorities to make sure that the remaining one is also killed,” said Mr Munyati.
