„Serengeti shall not die“ – German feasibility study for Southern alternative road starts

At the request of the Tanzanian Government Germany has started a  feasibility study for an alternative southern road around the Serengeti ecosystem. In 2009 the Government of Tanzania announced its intention to build a road connecting Arusha to Musoma by crossing the Serengeti National Park. This would have bisected the path that the huge wildebeest herds take in their annual migration between Kenya and Tanzania, from northern watering holes to their southern grazing pastures.

Germany supports the fight against poaching in Tanzania

The poaching crisis in East Africa is threatening elephants and rhinos in the wild and also, as a result, the livelihoods of local people and the economic development and security of Tanzania. Germany is one of the major partners of the Tanzanian government in its fight against poaching: The Federal Government of Germany has started a new biodiversity program in 2012 with a volume of 31,5 Mio. Euro to support the unique ecosystems of Selous and Serengeti. Germany is also financing a high­ly modern sur­veil­lance air­craft to patrol the Serengeti national park. In ad­di­tion, Germany has funded a large-scale cen­sus of the el­e­phant popu­la­tion in the Selous ecosystem in 2013. With the aim of supporting Tanzania and other African states in their effort to reduce illegal trade in ivory Germany initiated a research project that will not only allow for determining the age but also trace back the origin of ivory.
