How does Covid-19 affect nature conservation in Tanzania? In this blog, we show you how it is all connected, why we have been an ongoing supporter of the Serengeti De-Snaring Project and how you can still make a difference.
We have been a supporter of the Serengeti De-Snaring Project since the early days and are happy to share yet another successful update in support of wildlife conservation in Tanzania. The De-Snaring Project is a joint conservation initiative by the Frankfurt Zoological Society, Serengeti National Park (SENAPA), Tanzania National Parks (TANAPA) and local tour operators such as us, Tanzania-Experience.
Since the beginning of 2017, poachers in the Serengeti have a new opponent: the Serengeti De-Snaring Teams. In teams of eight they set out to detect and remove illegal wire-snares from the national park and surrounding areas. The project is a joint initiative by the Frankfurt Zoological Society and TANAPA (Tanzania National Parks) and SENAPA (Serengeti National Park).
When you think of poaching on the African continent you will most likely think of elephants and rhinos being slaughtered for their tusks and horns to be illegally traded for vast sums of money. Poaching is one of the biggest concerns among the conservation community aiming to ensure the survival of endangered species such as the rhino.
