Making People and Wildlife Interdependent
Where we work
Honeyguide focuses on large landscapes that serve as dispersal areas and critical migratory routes for wildlife in northern Tanzania. With 60 percent of wildlife in Tanzania living outside of national parks at any given time, protection of community lands, which are increasingly being designated as Wildlife Management Areas, is necessary and pressing for protecting Tanzania’s breathtaking biodiversity. It is in these community conservation areas where Honeyguide, in partnership with the Tanzanian government and other like-minded organizations, supports initiatives that will result in sustainable outcomes.
Our Impact 2019
Honeyguide’s major goal is for communities in northern Tanzania to protect and benefit from the rich wildlife and habitat around them. Primarily working with Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs), Honeyguide will, in the next five years, enable Randilen, Burunge and Makame to become sustainable WMAs.
What do we mean by that and how are we progressing towards this goal? Honeyguide is a results-orientated organization; watch our video to understand our impact for 2019.
Strategic Plan 2017 – 2021
Honeyguide envisions a Tanzania in which people and wildlife benefit from each other’s presence. We believe this can be achieved by:
- Reducing the costs of wildlife to local people
- Developing nature-based enterprises that increase the benefits of wildlife
- Working with communities to protect wildlife from illegal use
- Supporting the development of capable management and governance
- Improving local attitudes and awareness about wildlife and conservation
