Namibians continue to make up over 90% of arrested wildlife crime suspects in the country, according to the Combatting Wildlife Crime in Namibia Annual Report 2020 released last week. According to the report, although wildlife crime is ultimately driven by demand in consumer countries, locals seem to be the bulk of the arrests. Meanwhile, the report noted that the improved law enforcement and more effective disruption of criminal networks saw the decline in the number of rhinos poached in Namibia, with a figure of 31, as compared to 52 in 2019.
