Impact Story

Conservation of Nature for Survival (CONASU) emerged in response to the escalating threats to Tanzania's biodiversity and ecosystems. With increasing human-wildlife conflicts, habitat loss, and poaching, there was a pressing need for an organization dedicated to the conservation of nature while simultaneously addressing local communities' livelihood concerns. CONASU originated from a collaborative effort between environmentalists, scientists, and local stakeholders who recognized the intrinsic link between conservation and sustainable development. By actively involving communities in conservation efforts, CONASU not only contributes to preserving Tanzania's unique ecosystems and protecting endangered species but also fosters socio-economic benefits for local residents. Through initiatives like sustainable resource management, eco-friendly livelihood alternatives, and community education programs, CONASU has a positive impact on both biodiversity conservation and the improvement of livelihoods, creating a harmonious coexistence between nature and communities in Tanzania.
