Ruaha National Park

Ruaha National Park represents one of Tanzania’s most biologically rich and ecologically important regions; it is uniquely oriented within a transition zone between eastern and southern flora and fauna species, providing sanctuary to an extraordinarily high number of endemic species.

The Ruaha-Rungwa Ecosystem contains one of the largest elephant populations in the African continent.  Tragically, the rampant poaching of elephants for ivory across Africa is putting enormous pressure on their populations, and if the current rate of poaching continues, these majestic creatures will cease to exist in the wild within 20 years.

Wildlife Connection works everyday to combat poaching of elephants by both monitoring the elephant population inside Ruaha, and working with the communities around the park to build a foundation of support for elephant conservation among local people.
