Dance for Conservation
CAMPAIGN USING NATIVE DANCE TO SPREAD ANT- POACHING MESSAGE IN
COMMUNITY BORDERING THE SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK.
Each day 30 Elephants are killed in Tanzania. The current method of stopping the issue of wildlife poaching is by attempting to catch the suspected poachers in the act. This is a daunting task when most of the country is open space where the poachers can easily hide. The battle has recently turned deadly with the death of a British pilot at the hands of several poachers. This situation is unacceptable and will never end. There is too much land to cover and not enough rangers to cover it. Something must be done. This is where Peace for Conservation comes up using dance for elephants and rhino lives. Dance for elephant and rhino lives is a traditional Sukuma group dance united to raise awareness and demonstrate advocacy on wildlife conservation through traditional dance. The dance groups perform for the communities bordering the Serengeti National Park. We sing a song with the message to discourage communities who collude with poachers to destroy wildlife, especially elephants and rhinos.
Volunteer from abroad to learn how to dance and fight together for conservation, visit the National parks and perform with tourists in the camp and tourist lodge.
The program runs from August to December each year. if you are interested, book a reservation to participate. Contact David Kabambo: email
