The Wildlife scouts chosen from the community are to back Wildlife staff in guarding gardens against roaming wildlife.

Closing a one-day training wildlife scouts for Central and Nyamwamba divisions at Central division headquarters in Kasese Municipality yesterday, Mr. Masaba said national parks with their tradition importance of tourism, must be protected now that it is one of the biggest revenue source for Uganda.

Mr. Masaba later called for massive sensitization against poaching and un technically guided fishing methods that may end up rendering useless, these natural tourism and food sources. 

He asked the trained wildlife scouts to report cases of vandalism and guide communities about the value of conserving the environment for future use.
