It is half past twelve, a delegation of population from village CIRHAJE of group BUGORHE arrives at headquarters of site Tshivanga bringing a duiker. Park managers approach them and ask for the provenance of this animal. The head of delegation replies:“One woman was cultivating her field when suddenly she perceived antelope behind her. Instead of alerting the entire village, she ran to report it to the secretary of the community conservation committee (one collaborative structure park-population) who decided to go immediately on site and to mobilize others in aim to catch the beast. Once caught, the population informeddirectly the park which descended on the fieldto retrieve the animal.One old man is questioned about his mobilization to render animal to the parkand he merelyrespond:« conservation and management of natural resources of this park is a matter of all of us. We cannot address similar case without informing our neighbor – the park. Although, why we have signed the convention of collaboration with it? »The Park is happy about this act, which proves that sensitization has entered into the soul and that local communities are appropriating the governance of natural resources of Park. After analysis of veterinary of PNKB, there is no danger of releasing the animal in the nature. That has been done.
