On 11th September 2017, Honourable Walusiku of Lusaka subordinate court convicted Derrick Chibuye of the Unlawful Possession of Prescribed Trophy (leopard skin) contrary to sections 87(4) and 130(2) of the Zambia Wildlife Act 2015 read together with Statutory Instrument No. 61 of 1993 and sentenced him to 5 years imprisonment with hard labour.

Mr Chibuye’s arrest was made as a result of an operation by the Department of National Parks & Wildlife during which he was found attempting to sell the leopard skin illegally.

Leopards are at risk of extinction across Africa and Asia. In sub-Saharan Africa they have experienced a population decline in of more than 30 percent in the past 25 years. The illegal trade of Leopard skins is driven by a demand on the international black market. Leopard skins are often sold as finished skins for home decoration or use in the creation of luxury carpets. Locally, leopard skins are a central element of many cultural ceremonies often worn used as regalia.

The conservation of Leopards is of great economic and ecological importance to Zambia. Leopard sightings a rare an exciting event for tourists and significant carnivore populations are a vital part of a healthy ecosystem.

This arrest was made as a result of an intelligence-led operation by the Department of National Parks and Wildlife, supported by Wildlife Crime Prevention. The Department of National Parks and Wildlife under the Ministry of Tourism and Arts is dedicated to protecting Zambia’s wildlife and ensuring that wildlife criminals are put to justice.

I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any
browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly
in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any
advice to help fix this problem?

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking
forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let
you know a few of the images aren't loading correctly.
I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different browsers and
both show the same results.
