One of our supporters has written to us regarding the decision by the government of Tanzania to approve a major commercial highway across Serengeti National Park. The northern Serengeti - located near the Kenya border - is the most remote and pristine area in the Park's entire ecosystem. Serengeti National Park's locally and globally significant ecosystem is driven by migration of wildebeest, elephant and zebra. This wildlife, which has relied on traditional migratory routes for centuries, will be utterly devastated by the plan, as will be local livelihoods and the important wildlife tourist industry.
