Serengeti Update

Nothing has been resolved on the proposed Serengeti Highway

As of now the Tanzanian government has not responded to the offer by the German government and World Bank to fund the proposed Southern route. More worrisome is the fact that Tanzanian officials have become strangely silent about the highway. And plans are moving ahead to build a deep-water port near Tanga on the Indian Ocean coast to transport goods, presumably, on that Serengeti Highway.

We are still hopeful that this destructive plan will be scrapped and the sensible alternative route adopted.

I will be giving a presentation on the Serengeti situation at the 10th World Wilderness Congress in Salamanca, Spain in October.

 

We have 3 spaces left in our Wyoming workshop, September 22-28, 2013, in the heart of the Yellowstone/Grand Teton region. More information here. Or email Boyd: boydn@earthlink.net

And the battle goes on for Serengeti . . .


Spaces are still available on our Tanzania Photo

Tour/Workshop, Feb 3-15, 2014. Details here.





2014 marks our 30th year of Photo Tours/Workshops in the Serengeti ecosystem. If you would like to stay informed on our work to save this magnificent place, visit our Serengeti Watch website.

We've had numerous requests for prints. This is just one of many that are now offered for sale on Fine Art America

"Boyd Norton has captured the magic of this ancient and majestic ecosystem."
Dr. Jane Goodall

"Preserving the Serengeti is as much about saving our humanity, our link to nature
and our own ancient past, as it is about stopping an environmental tragedy.Boyd's
book, Serengeti, covers it all very well."
