Produced by Real2Reel Film Productions, www.real2reel.org Tanzania is uniquely rich in wildlife and natural resources, with over 28% of the country directly protected through national parks, game reserves, forest reserves and other conservation areas. However protected areas are not sufficient to alone accommodate wildlife migration patterns, which often run outside these zones causing conflicts with the populations settled there. In 1998, USAID joined hands with the Government of Tanzania, other donors and conservation NGOs, to undertake a bold new approach in community based conservation. Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs), which are community owned and managed conservation areas, have emerged as the best hope for mitigating human-wildlife conflict outside protected areas.

The island of Kilwa Kisiwani is located in a large bay on the coast of southern Tanzania, a six-hour drive from the capital, Dar es Salaam. Reachable only by boat from the small mainland town of Kilwa Masoko, the island is home to extensive ruins dating from three different periods of occupation. The earliest standing ruins are from the eleventh century, when the first Sultanate was established at Kilwa by a Persian prince. Two important structures dating from this era still stand. The first is the Great Mosque, which was built in the fourteenth century and was once the largest mosque in sub-Saharan Africa. The other is the palace at Husuni Kubwa, built between 1315 and 1330 and renowned for its spectacular pools and courtyards. Learn more: https://www.wmf.org/project/historic-sites-kilwa...
Along the northern coast of Tanzania, a series of innovative development projects are combining conservation efforts with health and livelihood interventions. In Healthy People, Healthy Environment: Integrated Development in Tanzania, we meet Rukia, Mahija, and Fidea from the Pangani and Bagamoyo districts who demonstrate how these "population, health, and environment" projects are improving their lives, their environment, and their community. Community members are some of the most important tools of the PHE approach -- local villagers become peer educators who can discuss the linkages of conservation and health with their neighbors and help spread the use of interventions such as clean cookstoves, sustainable seaweed farming, and reproductive health services. Executive Producer - Sean Pe...

The last part of our journey through Nairobi, Kenya and Tanzania, Africa Today we will be exploring the Ngorogoron crater in western Tanzania. Our last 2 days before we start our journey back to the states, Boston. We encounter many animals in the crater. It was more than we expected and had a great time by ourselves. We met Aaron Neville on the rim of the crater. Had a great time at St. Catharine's Monastery. The people there were the best. Great accommodations and the food couldn't be beat. Many thanks to all the Benedictine Camaldolesi Nuns for putting up with us. We will always remember our stay there.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is a conservation area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site located 180 km (110 mi) west of Arusha in the Crater Highlands area of Tanzania. The area is named after Ngorongoro Crater, a large volcanic caldera within the area. Ngorongoro was named by the Maasai as El-Nkoronkoro meaning Gift of Life. This was because they were migrating from Central Africa for a permanent settlement. That is why the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is mostly occupied by the Maasai. The main feature of the Ngorongoro Conservation Authority is the Ngorongoro Crater, the world's largest inactive, intact, and unfilled volcanic caldera. The crater, which formed when a large volcano exploded and collapsed on itself two to three million years ago, is 610 metres (2,000 feet) deep a...
Hear from Damian Bell, CEO of Honeyguide Foundation why conservation of wildlife is so important for Tanzania's future and how a conservation center can help increasing awareness and provide people opportunity to contribute. Listen to Saifuddin Khanbhai, entrepreneur and philanthropist how the idea for the conservation Arusha came to life, and why he is personally heavily supporting the build.
The Maasai performed an "adumu" jumping dance, part of the young men's "eunoto" coming-of-age ceremony. A circle is formed by the young men, and one or two at a time enter the center to jump while maintaining a narrow posture.

Tanzania's central bank has announced new rules that will force banks to hold more capital to withstand financial shocks. This follows a sharp rise in non-performing loans.
