Yes, they'll punish the poachers. But what of the fat cat forest officials and logging businessmen who are decimating sundarbans, madhupur forest, CHT and Sylhet division forests. The Sundarbans are notorious for 'dacoits' who kidnap and extort money from fishermen and villagers, while making a fortune from felling the trees for sale to the rest of Bangladesh! Remember the forest official 'bon raja' whose house was raided and wads of cash was stuffed in his pillows and mattresses?

Habitat loss is a greater threat than just poaching alone.
