Results of German funded Selous Elephant Census alarming
As ivory poaching represents one of the major threats to wildlife in Tanzania, understanding and monitoring the distribution and population size of elephants across this ecosystem is a top priority for anti-poaching efforts. That is why the German Government funded an elephant census that was being conducted in October 2013 by TAWIRI, the Tanzanian Wildlife Research Institute and the Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS) under the leadership of Tanzania’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism (MNRT). The results that were released by Minister Nyalandu at at Press Conference in Daressalam are alarming: only 13.084 elephants are left in Selous, indicating a decline of 67% since 2009. 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 and contribute to the fight against poaching.
