Uganda Wildlife Authority is in charge of conserving the country’s natural heritage, which includes animals, plants, natural features and ecosystems in general.

UWA implements diverse strategies to conserve and sustainably manage wildlife. They include community participation in wildlife management; revenue sharing; collaborative management; problem animal management; wildlife use rights; and conservation education and awareness.

UWA addresses conservation challenges such as poaching, encroachment and illegal grazing through strategies such as placing patrols in all protected areas and arresting people who invade park land without permission from the Authority.

UWA has also worked with communities around protected areas to address other challenges between wildlife and humans around these areas such as problem animals and human-wildlife conflicts among others. Wildlife benefit sharing programs are intended to contribute towards achieving the government’s aim of poverty eradication and improved community livelihoods.
