Why this blog?
To communicate and disseminate the results of the wildlife monitoring surveys conducted in Western Tanzania since 2008, thanks to a collaboration between Swiss (ADAP NGO, University of Applied Sciences of Western Switzerland - hepia Geneva) and Tanzanian partners (Inyonga Beekeepers Association, Mlele District Council, Wildlife Division & Forestry and Beekeeping Divisions of the Ministry of Natural Resource and Tourism).
The study area is an IUCN Category VI protected area, under community management. It holds an impressive biodiversity, both regarding vegetation (e.g. 124 tree species recorded, including Red Listed Species such as the Pterocarpus angolensis (Near threatened) and fauna (53 medium and large mammal species recorded, including Red Listed Species such as the Lycaon pictus, the Loxodonta africana, the Panthera leo, or the Panthera pardus).
We will try to post regularly updates about the results of the surveys that are still ongoing.
