NPS – NATURAL PARKS SURVEILLANCE

NPS catalogue

 

• The most serious threat to the animals and wild life of natural parks
are poachers and their criminal activity.
• natural parks are difficult to rangers and police.
• their boundaries are complex and ill-defined. often the law enforcement
authorities don’t have accurate data on exactly what crime is occurring in the park, and specially where parks are also difficult to patrol, they’re hard to lock up, and it is

practically impossible to install alarm systems in them, with sufficient
area coverage. natural vegetation, especially in parks with more
naturalistic settings, often inhibits surveillance and networks of
usual control sensors (e.g.closed-circuit television -cctv) are unlikely
to be able to cover the whole park and anyhow even to be installed in
practice.

In general is useful to involve the population in efforts to conserve
the protected areas, for example, as far as and when possible, through
joint surveillance and joint management activities. to reduce the
pressure exerted by communities on natural resources, in many cases it
is believed that getting them involved in this conservation effort can
be helpful.

The goal is to make people aware about the importance of protecting
the park’s natural resources
