Illegal hunting, logging and fishing activities recurred in some areas in September. Besides, people have been caught directly exploiting non-timber forest products and illegal hunting is still going on.
Periodic and irregular patrols have been carried out on a weekly basis, but only to limit the illegal activities of people in some hot areas in the Park.
