The goal of the BPCT is to preserve Africa's large predator
TANZANIA has finalized arrangements to reinstate tourism desks in its embassies around the world.
Speaking to journalists on Friday in Dar es Salaam after opening the first Tanzania Tourist Board's stakeholders meeting to deliberate on the new proposed brand destination, the Minister for Natural Resources and Tourism, Mr Ezekiel Maige said that his ministry has already secured some funds to support the desk officers in the embassies abroad.
Community outreach teams from CCB travel throughout the countryside to farms, cattle posts and villages to survey and investigate incidents of conflict between cheetahs and their human neighbors. Through studying these encounters of threatened or actual livestock predation, CCB is able to map “hot-spots” and learn which stock management techniques were in use so that new measures, both more effective and predator-friendly, can be devised.
Kenya to launch investment bonds for wildlife and conservation
Funds from the new wildlife investment bonds will be used to improve infrastructure for tourists and also help conservation projects for wildlife. The KWS hope to raise enough funds to improve road networks that currently are closed regularly due to flood. It also aims to establish eco-lodges and help expand on community led conservation ranches. Part of the funds will also be directed at national park security systems to improve anti-poaching systems.
