Cracking Down
Photograph by Randy Olson

While her mother is hauled off for questioning about possession of an impala hide, a girl consoles her seven-month-old brother in the Tanzanian village of Kitunguruma. Privately funded antipoaching patrols are cracking down on the illegal traffic in bush meat from Serengeti National Park. Some indigenous groups with strong traditions of subsistence hunting, such as the Kuria and the Ikoma people, still view the region's animals as a ready source of protein and cash.
