Tanzania lifts ban on wildlife exports

Tanzania is temporarily rolling back a ban on wildlife exports that was in force for six years to safeguard protected animals and birds, the wildlife service said. The decision to lift the ban for an initial six months saw conservationists appeal for monitoring processes to guard against poaching, which has been on the decline. "The government has been assessing the business of exporting live wild animals since the ban was imposed and now it has lifted the ban," Tanzania Wildlife Management Authority said in a statement in June 2022.
