Stop the Serengeti Highway – write to TZ ambassadors


Dear all,

I need your help.

On August 1st 2010, the president of Tanzania, Jakaya Kikwete, approved the construction of a controversial highway across the Serengeti National Park – long story short, it will kill the great wildebeest migration. WE MUST NOT LET THIS HAPPEN.

Please write to the Tanzanian Ambassador in your country, region to protest the construction of the highway. Here is some suggested text, and some key contacts.

Please circulate this information as widely as you can – on your own blogs, twitter, FB etc.

His Excellency

Jakaya Kikwete

President of the Republic of Tanzania

<Today’s Date>

Dear President Kikwete

While I understand and support the need for Tanzania to develop her cities and natural resources, I think that the Tanzanian decision to construct a highway across the Serengeti¬† the greatest threat in the Serengeti’s history, and will destroy a globally important heritage, the great Wildebeest migration.

Scientists have warned that the highway which is in the direct path of ancient wildlife migration routes will destroy the migration and will have disastrous effects on the entire ecosystem. The northern parts of the Serengeti and the adjacent Masai Mara are critical for the wildebeest and zebra migration during the dry season, as it is the only permanent year-round water source for these herds.

I appeal to you and the government of Tanzania to stop the planned construction of this highway and choose an alternate route that offers a safer alternative route to the south which bypasses Serengeti altogether.  Please listen to the voices of millions of people world wide, and do not damage the legacy of your first president, Julius Nyerere who gave the Tanzania global recognition for conservation achievements. A reputation which your country still enjoys.

Yours Sincerely

<your name, address, and contacts>

  1. Paula,

    I dont know that the highway is such a bad idea…perhaps a way of minimising its impact on wildlife would be a better approach to this than trying to stop its construction altogether: I suspect that the ordinary people of Tanzania in general, and Serengeti in particular, don’t really care that much about migrating bovines, but more about getting their produce to market on time…

  2. I will never forget when I saw the Wildebeast migration for the first time in 1998. To this day, the Serengeti, to me, is one of the most beautiful places on earth. I understand Africa’s needs for development and infrastructure is a big part of that but like you noted Paula, there are better way plus, you know what highways bring in Africa, horrid truck stop villages, pollution and environmental destruction.

  3. The construction of the Serengeti highway has to be stopped! This road could lead to the increase of poachers, as well as a decrease in the population of the reserves wildlife and a confliction with the annual great migration of wildebeest.

  4. I think the average Tanzanian is more likely to benefit from the road than the migration of the wildebeests.
    If the country is anything like Kenya with regard to tourism, I bet very few Tanzanians even go to see the animals, which maybe is why you ask people to write to the embassies.
