Our Mission

To support PAMS Foundation Tanzania and other compatible projects that meaningfully conserve biodiversity, wilderness, habitats and ecological processes through actions that benefit nature and communities.

Elephant Conservation Project

Tens of thousands of elephants are being killed every year for their tusks. PAMS Foundation is working hard to help save Africa’s elephants from being slaughtered due to the illegal ivory trade.

Giraffe Conservation Support

In 1999, there were around 140 000 giraffes, but today there are only an estimated number of 80 000 giraffes left.  They are being targeted for bush meat and need our protection.

Communities & Conservation

Training and capacity building of Rangers and other relevant Law Enforcement Officers is essential for ongoing wildlife protection. Africa needs well trained and equipped rangers.

Best Practice & Training

Sustainable conservation requires the understanding of communities living in and around wildlife areas. Their support is essential to the long term future of African wildlife and habitats.

Elephant Conservation Project

PAMS Foundation Tanzania – a not for profit conservation organization based in Tanzania. It is currently playing a leading role in supporting the effective protection of elephants and in addressing illegal wildlife trade. It has helped to turn the tide on elephant poaching. PAMS Foundation works at all levels, from supporting communities in and around conservation areas, to training and equipping rangers, supporting special police operations and working closely with relevant government departments. Check out their work at www.pamsfoundationtanzania.org.

Detection dogs – Implemented by Team Rokka from Finland, sniffer dogs are playing an important role in detecting illegal items such as ivory and firearms, which greatly help law enforcement operations.

Giraffe Conservation Support

Bushmeat – One of the wildlife species targeted in the bushmeat trade is Giraffe. Their numbers have declined drastically to only 80,000 over the last few years and PAMS Foundation started a project to specifically protect this species in the Tarangire-Lake Manyara national parks ecosystem, since May 2015.

Monitoring – The Wild Nature Institute conducts Scientific Research and monitoring on giraffe and their habitats, advocates for their protection, and educates the public about the need to preserve wild nature. Their core project area in Tanzania is in the Tarangire-Lake Manyara ecosystem.

Anti-Poaching Training Manual – PAMS Foundation is leading the development of a Best Practice Guideline for field ranger Anti-Poaching Training on behalf of the International Ranger Federation and the IUCN.

Ranger training – Training and capacity building among Rangers and other Wildlife Law enforcement officers is essential for ongoing wildlife protection. PAMS Foundation arranges and facilitates anti-poaching training that is tailored according to needs, in Tanzania and to a smaller extent in neighboring countries.

United For Rangers – is a network of partners working together for the furtherance and development of the vital role played by rangers and their purpose in wildlife conservation around the world. The shared objectives of the UFR members relate primarily to the development of best practice for wildlife, marine and forest rangers and wardens and to conducting interventions which assist the shared mission of effective wildlife protection.

Communities & Conservation

Education – We believe that community education and support is essential to conserving wildlife and natural landscapes. An environmental education syllabus called ‘Living in Harmony with Nature’ has been developed and is being taught at various schools near conservation areas.

Crop & Livestock Protection – During the growing season, animals such as elephant often raid the crop fields of local farmers. Similarly, predators such as lion kill cattle and other livestock. The results from this human-wildlife conflict includes a loss food and in income to local farmers and livestock keepers, loss of wildlife which are killed in retaliation and sometimes also the loss of human life. Poachers also exploit this situation to kill more elephants or other wildlife species at times, under the guise of them being ‘problem animals’. The situation thus needs to be managed carefully. PAMS Foundation thus works with local authorities and communities to help protect their crops and livestock, through various mitigation measures which benefit humans and save the lives of domestic and wild animals.
