Help Us In Protecting our Planet

 

For All of Us

The world is currently travelling through the 6th mass extinction. This is and will affect biodiversity and the ecosystem services they provide to humans. We, in developing countries will be affected more because of limited capacity and resources to adapt. Addressing the direct and underlying drivers of biodiversity loss is our ambitious mission. Placing greater priority on biodiversity and nature based solutions is important now than ever for sustainable development and human well-being. Your support will help us race against the time to protect our planet earth.

About Nature Tanzania

Nature Tanzania is an independent membership national conservation NGO in Tanzania, with its offices located at TEMDO Njiro road Arusha Tanzania. It is guided by its Constitution and a five year strategy 2017 – 2022. Nature Tanzania is a national membership-based conservation NGO. It is governed by an independent board of directors and an Annual General Meeting (AGM). Being a membership NGO, our members are our strength.

Tanzania country is rich in biodiversity and therefore very important for conservation. The country has recorded over 1,200 species of birds. We are using birds as indicators of ecosystem health and a tool for biodiversity conservation. The organization is under the Non-Governmental Organizations Act, 2002 to operate in Tanzania mainland. We are working with communities, the private sector and the government in areas identified as Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas (IBA) and Key Biodiversity Areas (KBA).

Our projects and initiatives are contributing towards delivery of goal 1, 2, 3, 6, 13, 14 and 15 of the SDGs. They also contributed to the following Aichi Biodiversity Targets; 1, 3, 4, 7, 9, 12 and 14. We are also piloting Nature Based Solutions (NbS). NbS are becoming important in addressing global societal challenges i.e. climate change, food and water security, human health and socio-economic development.

We Have the Power to Impact Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It

Our work and activities are aligned and global and national conservation targets. We are working with the national, regional and local governments in planning and implementation of programs that support biodiversity conservation and human development. We are committed in supporting the government of Tanzania in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and other relevant conventions. We are also keen in piloting and implementing Nature-Based Solutions.

Appeal for the Conservation of Long-billed Forest Warbler

long-billed Forest-warbler (Artisornis moreaui) is a near-endemic and Critically Endangered bird species that can be reliably found in Amani Nature Forest Reserve. High pressure/threats from agriculture, logging and invasive species have resulted in rapid alteration and fragmentation of its habitat, putting the species on the brinck of extinction. Some population are found outside the protected area networks exacerbating the threats. Urgent actions are needed in order to save this species and its habitats in the East Usambara Mountains.
