Some memories from one of the most anticipated events of the year for PAMS Foundation—the Tembo Cup! It’s always an extraordinary opportunity for communities to come together and have fun while at the same time learning important environmental conservation messages.
What are researchers doing to save our planet? The sixth mass extinction continues and is even accelerating, but conservation scientists, it is claimed, have no solutions to offer. Even more worrying, the researchers would be so pessimistic that the warnings they give could be counterproductive. But is this really the case? Two researchers from the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) have addressed this question. They examined almost 13,000 research articles published during the last 15 years in the main scientific journals dedicated to conservation to figure this out. ... See more
Over 15 years, almost 13,000 scientific papers have been published in the leading conservation science journals. Yet biodiversity remains threatened at a global scale.

Have you heard about this? The interesting (and sad) case of how the dingo has been delisted as ‘fauna’ in Australia...A look at how we decide to name things at our convenience...

It seems ironic but the conservation equation is a delicate one...so delicate that sometimes a protected species can become a threat to another endangered species ... a great challenge for those involved in conservation:
Are Laikipia's recovering lions turning to endangered Grevy's zebras (Equus grevyi) for their next meal?
We were extremely happy to host Kimberly from the United States who visited some of our conservation education projects. Kimberly learned a lot from the PAMS Education Team about how we run our program, including our student field trips to visit national parks. To us, it’s very important for students to be able to visit Tanzania’s beautiful wildlife and landscapes as well as learn about different conservation techniques to ensure a sustainable future for all. We at PAMS believe that conservation education is extremely important to shape the minds of Tanzania’s future leaders and future wildlife ambassadors in order to protect the country’s natural heritage. Conservation education is like a flower which attracts many insects, the brighter the flower, the more insects will come; intensive implementation of conservation education for youth will attract more people to learn and support conservation efforts! ...
