Natural resource management depends upon people having secured their livelihood. ” Hungry people in the community cannot support a conservation campaign “; conservation of natural resources throughout the community close to the Serengeti ecosystem depends on the livelihoods of the people in surrounding communities.
This program is designed for entrepreneurship in Biodiversity Conservation, with an emphasis on elements of self-help initiative, community capacity building and local resources mobilization, a community’s project ownership and joint management of the conservation program. The program is based upon conservation-friendly (or neutral) income generating activities. Further supporting the conservation aspect of this enterprise, many of the groups so far established consist entirely of former illegal bushmeat hunters who have agreed to stop poaching wildlife and are looking for alternative livelihood options.
