- Started by the Wild Nature Institute, this group facilitates networking and information sharing about Wildlife Conservation in the Tarangire Ecosystem of Tanzania. The Tarangire Ecosystem of northern Tanzania is a global wildlife hotspot but becoming increasingly endangered by habitat loss and severe bushmeat poaching. Wildlife populations are declining drastically in the Tarangire Ecosystem. Promising community conservation efforts are underway to give local villagers ownership of wildlife resources and the chance to benefit economically through ecotourism. Our goal is to protect the wildlife migratory route from Tarangire to the Northern Plains, galvanize community conservation through land-use planning, initiate local moran anti-poaching patrols, and promote grassroots eco-tourism development in order to conserve and develop the economy, the ecology, and the culture of the Tarangire Ecosystem.
