As the country continues to witness the human and wildlife conflict that has resulted in some injured while others killed, Zimbabwe Parks & Wildlife Management Authority says there are ongoing discussions on how best victims of human and wildlife conflict can be compensated. Addressing a media conference post Human Wildlife Conflict Research Results dissemination, Zimbabwe Parks & Wildlife Management Authority Spokesman Tinashe Farawo said the discussion to compensate is originated from neighboring countries like Botswana where victims of human and wildlife conflict are compensated. At least 68 people were killed last year in a human and wildlife conflict while around 40 people have so far been killed this year. Manicaland’s Middle Sabi area is one of the human and wildlife conflict most affected areas in the country.
