Jovago: No one would like to live on an empty Paradise


Over a decade ago, when I was traveling, with my parents, they used to choose a seat near the window so that I will be busy with the outside stunning view.  It was not hard to spot, elephants, tigers, and lions on my way to Iringa. Mikumi National Park used to wow my trip as I was able to see several wildlife’s on the sidewalks.

Tanzania is home to several wild animals enticing travelers around the world. On the other hand illegal hunters make business brutally taking the life of elephants, leopards, Rhino horn for their skins and ivory.  This poaching activity in Tanzania’s national Park is increasingly threatening the life of the wild animals.

Tanzania elephant population declined by 60% in just five years, significantly coming down from 109,051 in 2009 to 43,330 in 2014. The scary trend might turn Tanzania into an empty paradise, if proper security system is not established around and inside the park. The negative impact of killing the wild animals will reach far beyond the potential cultural loss of iconic species like elephant, rhino and tigers.

The loss of wildlife is not only a tragedy for their lives but it has also a big impact on the country’s economy    affecting the country tourism reducing the number of visitors who are coming to Tanzania to see the wild animals.  .

To save the life of the wild animals and to support the country tourism Jovago Tanzania is calling everyone to collaborate and join hands on the conservation of the wild animals. Collaboration for this good cause is a power for the conservation of wildlife. Working together to prevent some of the world’s most threatened species from vanishing forever will keep the country popularity for leisure travelers bringing foreign currency supporting the country. Certainly working together with the public and all stakeholders will make a difference in protecting the wildlife from illegal hunters.

Saving nature should be at the very heart of the public and government taking the responsibility to find solutions that save the marvelous array of life on national parks. Such pay it forward initiative will in turn help protect varied ecosystems while ensuring people and the country continue to benefit from nature.
