Supporting De-snaring in the Serengeti

Last night FZS held an event to introduce the ‘De-Snaring Programme’ to some of the key stakeholders in Arusha. 

Nomad sat and listened as the reality of what is going on in our beautiful Serengeti was explained to us all in shocking detail.

It is sad to learn exactly what is going on right under our noses, but we are proud that Nomad supports their work and is counted among the founding members of Tour Operators investing in the program. 

In just five months, the De-snaring Programme has already amassed some shockingly high piles of snares removed from the Serengeti. 

Since mid-april 6800+ snares have been found and removed, and 100 animals successfully freed of the 356 animals found trapped.
This is all the work of the Serengeti De-snaring 8 man team. 

The traps are indiscriminate and those who end up caught are lucky to come out alive. 'Stumpy' is a wellknown character in the Serengeti who has been left with half a trunk as a result of being caught in a snare.

Wildlife snaring in the Serengeti is commonly associated with trophy hunting, but is also connected to the bush-meat trade. With many villages sitting just outside the boundaries of the national park, illegal killing and smuggling out of animal carcasses and dried meat to sell in local markets is becoming increasing high. 

Together with FZS & TANAPA, and other local tour operators, we hope that more de-snaring teams will be funded and operational very soon.
