Soccer for Conservation
CAMPAIGN USING SOCCER TO SPREAD ANTI- POACHING MESSAGE IN THE
COMMUNITIES BORDERING THE SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
The Peace for Conservation developed a program for conservation education using soccer to spread the anti-poaching message in the communities bordering the Serengeti National Park. The program will run for five years from 2016 -2020. It will be implemented in summer from July to September each year as a tournament competition which involves teams from villages bordering the Serengeti National Park. Each team from the participating villages will be provided with a T-shirt jersey and one ball to be used during the tournament. The main goals are to bring together
the majority of youth from the villages surrounding the Serengeti National Park, with a view to raise their knowledge on the escalating elephant poaching situation in the park and game reserve, and how the youth could be involved in tackling the crisis. Also soccer for conservation honours those deadly by killed by poachers for recognised his/ her commitment of wildlife conservation mission in game reserve and National park.
