Kafue National Park, Zambia, has had poaching problems for many years. The main culprits were local farmers suffering from poor crop yields who were forced into poaching to feed their families.

Addressing this problem, the United Nations introduced an educational program to improve farming techniques so that yields and sustainability would improve. They are also providing alternative income opportunities to communities, so that people are less likely to turn to poaching for a living. The program's success has enabled many farmers to increase food security and raise their standard of living by selling excess produce.  

The Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) also has increased the number of rangers patrolling national parks and game reserves. These rangers are trained to track and apprehend poachers. ZAWA is using a variety of technologies to combat poaching, including drones, satellite imagery, and radio tracking collars. These technologies help rangers to identify and monitor poaching activity.
