CLAMART, FRANCE (journalducameroun.com) - Tanzania has received €18 million equivalent to over Sh45 billion from the federal government of Germany to help its conservation measures in the Selous Game Reserve (SGR), reports said on Sunday.In the effort to strengthen the anti-poaching war, Germany has also donated six brand new Toyota Land Cruisers.

Speaking at Matambwe near Lake Tagalala during the launch of the Selous Ecosystem Conservation and Development Program (SECAD), the Natural Resources and Tourism Minister, Prof Jumanne Maghembe said on Sunday in Dar es Salaam that he welcomed the Germany’s engagement in protecting the SGR.

“The SECAD provides a firm basis for the protection of the Selous natural resources for the benefit of the country, adjacent communities and the country’s natural heritage,” said Prof Maghembe.

The Germany ambassador to Tanzania, Mr Egon Kochanke said the program was a joint effort by the two governments, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to effectively conserve the SGR and its wider ecosystem and address threats to its status as the World Heritage Site.

“In light of huge challenges facing the SGR including poaching, encroachment and poverty in its buffer zones and due to magnificent and unique ecosystem of global importance, Germany has committed to support Tanzania in protecting the SGR for the benefit of the present and future generation,” he said.

The program will be implemented by the ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism (MNRT) through the Tanzania Wildlife Management Authority (TAWA) in cooperation with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS).
