Makame has the potential to serve as an example for other Wildlife Management Areas in achieving financial sustainability and independence. By 2023, Makame is projected to bring in $500,000 in annual revenue—$265,000 from its 30-year contract with Carbon Tanzania, and an additional $235,000 from hunting tourism. This will allow it to operate a budget surplus without any donor support, even after sharing around $300,000 annually with communities, the local district, and the central government. All this while benefiting the environment: the carbon-trading scheme prevents 268,000 trees from being felled annually and, by the end of 2019, it had a verified emissions reduction of 99,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide. Honeyguide, meanwhile, is engaging with tourist hunters to promote ethical practices.
