Why our African Wildlife is important to the environment and to the human population.
Our African Wildlife offers enormous benefits to the general environment. The fragile eco-system relies on wildlife for food, shelter and materials for construction.
Without a healthy wildlife population, the fragile eco-system breaks down. The birds have less to feed on. They drop less seeds. Less indigenous plants grow. Having less plants is more likely to lead to soil erosion and this leads to less crops for humans.
If there is less wildlife, there will be less manure to enrich the soil. This will also have an adverse effect on the quality of crops for humans.
Direct Value to local population
Chagga Mzungu works with local communities to reduce the negative effects of wildlife incursion on their day-to-day living by highlighting the positive values of having one of Earth’s most valuable assets right on their door step.
The African Wildlife is important to them because it can be a valuable source of income through direct, and indirect, tourism. Our aim is to provide local communities with the support that they can generate an income from the wildlife in a way that benefits both the humans and the animals.
Value to the World.
Our African Wildlife is a World asset. It’s important to all of us. The animals are part of the World’s rich tapestry. In our quest to cover the world with concrete and tarmac, we need to protect the wildlife spaces in Africa for our own benefit (and for theirs).
The wildlife is important to all of us. Get Involved. Chagga Mzungu is a small, but effective, registered NGO charity. Members of the board now live all around the World. However, their childhood was spent in Tanzania and they need your help to educate, train and develop local communities so that they can treat the African Wildlife as an asset.
