Similar scripts where landowners have set aside huge tracts of land for wildlife conservation are replicated all over Masailand. In return, they share proceeds of tourism with the lodges that are within the conservancy.
This is going to be a hard topic to tackle, just because of where it happens. Out of sight. To be specific, generally 5km`s or more beyond site beyond the horizon. For years now local fishermen have noticed unusually depleted fish reserves in areas where there should be large numbers of fish. They have also
Wildlife Services is a federal agency under the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and it specializes in killing wild animals that threaten livestock—especially predators such as coyotes, wolves, and cougars. Outside the ranching community, few have heard of Wildlife Services.

Our friend Lynn really knows what she is talking about... she has done the research.
Lion meat has been gaining traction among adventurous foodies. But some wildlife advocates worry that interest in lion meat in the U.S. could encourage more poaching abroad. So they're pushing legislation to ban lion meat in the state that seems to be at the center of the U.S. trade.
When you add up everything that is being spent to save the rhino from extinction in the wild, then it would become a teeny tiny fraction of 1%. The vast majority of the money donated to rhino conservation is spent on the ground on protection measures – fencing, rangers, equipment, dehorning etc. Only a relatively small percentage is spent in demand countries. Of that percentage, again only a small fraction goes into what can be classed as demand reduction campaigns....

Real food for thought as to where we are spending our time and money... and what really needs to be done to stop the rhino poaching!
Shocking and sad images have been all over the media in the past few days as some massive sperm whales have washed up dead on British beaches. Normally humans and these deep water leviathans live far apart, so it’s understandable that we are surprised and distraught to encounter them like this. But why does it happen? And what can you do?
Human encroachment and poaching are denying the government of revenue at Swagaswaga Game Reserve in Kondoa District, Dodoma Region.
Covering about 871 square kilometres between Kondoa and Chemba districts, the international hunting block could have generated lucrative cash in terms of foreign currencies, but it has never received much attention by the parent ministry despite the uniqueness of the area.
It takes only two hours to drive from Dodoma Municipality to the fascinating site well-covered by Miombo woodland.
Birds like lesser Koribustard, ground hornbill, lovebird, francolins, and guinea fowls welcome you with amazing sounds, before you proceed to Kondoa-Irangi painting caves which make the reserve even more unique. Wildlife animals found in the game reserve include jumbos, giraffes, buffaloes, elands, hartebeests, klipspringers, dikdik, warthogs, bushpigs, lions, leopards, hyenas, jackals, honey budges, civets, and zebra.
But despite the endowment, the government is yet to benefit from the block, thanks to human activities and poaching facing the reserve.
