Rangers battle human encroachment in Sudan’s biggest park
06 June 2021 | 2:19 pm
Tucked away by the Ethiopian border, Sudan's Dinder National Park boasts the country's most diverse wildlife, but rangers face a daily battle to protect it as human encroachment mounts. Spread over more than 10,000 square kilometres (3,800 square miles), 400 kilometres (250 miles) southeast of Khartoum, the park is Sudan's biggest and abuts Ethiopia's Alatash National Park. Villagers say they do their best to follow park restrictions but add that they desperately need more land to feed themselves.
