bhapu-iconAbout the Project

The Bumi Hills Anti-Poaching Unit (BHAPU) was established in July 2009 by the Bumi Hills Safari Lodge and resident Professional Guide Andrew Dalzell. Working Closely with Nyami-Nyami Rural District Council Wildlife Section and The National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority the unit works tirelessly to protect and conserve all forms of fauna and flora in the Bumi Hills Wildlife Area and beyond.

Motto

Rehabilitate - Protect - Preserve

Mission Statement

We will stop at nothing to ensure that our diminishing wild places are rehabilitated where necessary, protected against the destructive actions of the human race and preserved for the benefit of the environment and future generations of wildlife.

Achievement to date

  • Successful execution of the award winning 'Starvation Island Feeding Program'
  • Successful rescue of a lioness that had a wire snare around her ankle
  • Successful rescue of an elephant bull that had a cable snare around his front leg

  • Successful expansion of the road network within the wildlife area ensuring greater access to vulnerable areas
  • Successful control and retardation of many bush fires during the dry seaon to preserve grazing for all wildlife
  • Successful exposure that led to the direct impoundment of kapenta rigs commercially fishing in illegal areas
