How do zoos protect against poaching?



  1. 0 Votes

    Zoos do little to explicitly protect against poaching beyond the obvious high locked walls and fences around the zoo itself. Additionally, most zoos have security guards that patrol zoo grounds day and night. Unfortunately, the security can only go so far as the honesty of the guards themselves. It appears as though most poaching scenarios are inside jobs perpetrated or assisted by guards. Because of the money that poachers can get from their kills they are able to bribe security guards and gain access to the animals. The only solution to this would be to pay guards exceptionally well, however, zoos themselves do not make much money, especially in countries where poaching is rampant.
