It’s quite embarrassing so much, over these year due to the worse experiences that are life threatening to human, livestock’s and wildlife respectively. In deed we are pastoral-nomad communities; that translate people who move from one place to another in such of palatable pasture and water for our livestock and selves...

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?

Tanzania: Encroachment, Poaching Destroys Hunting Block, Scares Away Tourists

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.

Poverty and Racism - Attitudes Towards Animal Rights, Animal Welfare and Environmentalism

 A video clip from the documentary BABOON WOMAN by FireCracker Films that illustrates the Khoisan's harmonious relationship with baboons.
