Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) acknowledges this support and are confident that ranger presence in the area will aid law enforcement and tackle the poaching problem in Tangi valley.

 

The ranger post was commissioned by Leslie Carvell, present was representation from UWA HQ, Murchison Falls, media fraternity, UCF corporate members.
