The Nature Conservancy in Tanzania

We’re working with partners and communities in Tanzania to protect important natural resources for a resilient future.

Our work in Tanzania is as diverse as its residents and wildlife. On the shores of Lake Tanganyika, the Tuungane Project is creating healthier families, fisheries and forests. In northern Tanzania, we're leading a coalition of 10 partners in the Northern Tanzania Rangelands Initiative to conserve wildlife corridors, secure communal land rights and benefits for indigenous communities, and more.
