This week Wild Nature Institute began wildlife surveys in Burunge Wildlife Management Area, a community wildlife protection zone adjacent to Tarangire National Park. Our goal is to measure how wildlife populations are responding to newly implemented anti-poaching and resource protection efforts by Burunge Wildlife Management Area village game scouts and rangers. The rangers and scouts work in partnership with PAMS Foundation, who provide training. We are excited to be a part of this important project to support community conservation that benefits people and wildlife. We thank ranger Florian (in the picture below, with Dr. Derek Lee of Wild Nature Institute) for accompanying us on our surveys.
The crown jewel of the Wildlife Management Area is beautiful Lake Burunge, the final stop for the Tarangire River. The Tarangire River is the lifeblood of the Tarangire Ecosystem, providing drinking water during the dry season for migratory and resident wildlife. Below are photos of Lake Burunge and some of its magnificent wildlife.
