Vanishing Wildlife Corridors in Tanzania

One of the biggest challenges for big African wildlife like lions, elephants, and buffalo is movement across native habitat that is increasingly being encroached on by humans. Vanishing Wildlife Corridors in Tanzania are the subject of a new study released in 2012 by a group of researchers. Find attached the complete text Vanishing wildlife corridors and options for restoration: a case study from Tanzania. Tropical Conservation Science Vol. 5(4):463-474.

The western side of the Serengeti has higher levels of illegal hunting because of the increased human population density. Researcher estimate (see mongabay.com's open-access Tropical Conversation Science) that 52,000 to 60,000 illegal hunters presently live within 45 km west of the Greater Serengeti Ecosystem. Poachers use wire snares to target large herbivores, but unselective harvesting is prevalent and many carnivores such as lions and leopards are killed; pit traps, dogs, spotlighting, and bow and arrows are also used. Poverty seems to be the driving force and as human population densities continue to grow, it is unlikely that poaching will subside, if no alternatives are offered.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
