Ruaha Roundtable Meeting

HALI is gearing up for the bi-annual Ruaha Roundtable Meeting next week on the 23rd of  November at Neema Crafts in Iringa, Tanzania.  November's meeting, organized by Strengthening the Protected Area Network in Southern Tanzania (SPANEST) is designed to help facilitate and strengthen constructive dialogue and collaboration among non-governmental conservation, ecology and environmental education stakeholders working in the Ruaha landscape.  

Ruaha Carnivore Project is helping pastoralists build improved bomas to prevent livestock predation.

We look forward to these meetings to learn about other projects and activities in the area, like the Ruaha Carnivore Project, working to help pastoralists improve their bomas (livestock enclosures) to prevent predation from wildlife like lions and hyenas.  HALI coordinator Dr. Goodluck Paul will be presenting for us this time, though I'm sure several of our team members will be at Neema Crafts to learn about other projects and eat some delicious baked goods.  

Neema Crafts, the host of the November Ruaha Roundtable Meeting, provides handicrafts training and employment for deaf and physically disabled people in Iringa, Tanzania.
