Guyana- Statutory law - Human wildlife conflict
According to the Wildlife Conservation, Management and Sustainable Use Regulations, any person can kill or wound wild animals in self-defence or in defence of any other person, when it is immediately and absolutely necessary. Private landowners or occupiers may kill animals causing or threatening to cause damage to livestock, crops, water installations or fences in their land. Any such killings must be reported as soon as possible to the nearest officer or police station. Animals killed or wounded under these circumstances cannot be sold or offered for sale.
In terms of institutional arrangements, the Guyana Wildlife Conservation and Management Commission (GWCMC) is the competent body for relocating or authorizing the relocation of wildlife causing nuisance. The GWCMC may delegate its functions related to human-wildlife conflict.
