Mahale and Lake Tanganyika

David Banks Shares Scenes from Tanzania

Western Tanzania has some of the highest fertility rates in Africa.

The Conservancy and Pathfinder are working together to integrate conservation and human health.

To travel between villages along Lake Tanganyika, you take a boat.

A side trip to Ethiopia reveals a situation we want to avoid in Tanzania: overcrowded villagers farming even in Simien National Park, home to the endangered gelada baboon.

Communities around Lake Tanganyika depend on fishing for survival.

Children represent hope for a healthy Mahale ecosystem far into the future.
