A Road Through the Serengeti?

Recent articles and a statement from the Communications Officer of Tanzania National Parks have confirmed that the Tanzanian Government is planning to build a commercial road that cuts directly through the Serengeti. This is becoming a very hot topic, especially within the conservation community in Tanzania and even internationally, and TNRF would like to alert our members to the issue and provide information so they can learn more.
