This to inform researchers, Management authorities, conservation Non-Governmental Organizations, donors, and the general public that the 11th Scientific Conference of the Tanzania Wildlife Research Institute (TAWIRI) will be held from 6-8 December 2017 in Arusha, Tanzania. The theme of the conference is “People, Livestock and Climate change: Challenges for sustainable biodiversity conservation”.

  1. Impact of livestock grazing, human population and climate change on biodiversity conservation and ecosystem services
  2. Wildlife ecology and ecological interactions
  3. Wetland and water resources management
  4. Wildlife diseases and ecosystem health
