Serengeti Preservation Foundation Director Discusses Land Conservation in Tanzania

May 2, 2019

Between 2006 and 2014, illegal poaching in Tanzania had reduced elephant populations from 137,000 to 44,000. It took the efforts of conservation organizations to bring global attention to the outrage - organizations like the Serengeti Conservation Foundation. Meyasi Meshilieck is the executive director of the Foundation and he will be in Boise discussing efforts to preserve the flora and fauna of the Serengeti and Tanzania in the face of human development and global climate change. He joins Idaho Matters to discuss conservation; the event is sponsored by the Earth Island Institute's Serengeti Watch, it will take place at the Capital Center Event Center this evening.
