Volunteers, rangers contain Mount Meru fires
For nearly two weeks, the flames scorched the forests and foothills of Mount Meru, including swathes of Arusha National Park. The fire threatened hundreds of people and animals.
Nearly every day, however, more than 800 community volunteers and rangers trekked for up to three hours up the mountain to combat the inferno. Honeyguide helped deploy a small unit from Enduimet Wildlife Management Area to support firefighting brigades.
