The sustainable management of Tanzania’s wildlife is therefore, as President Nyerere observed over forty years ago, is a matter of great importance to the country.

The wildlife management system in Tanzania as provided for by the Wildlife Conservation Act of 1974 is being changed. The Wildlife Conservation Act No. 12, 1974 has been the main legislation responsible for regulating wildlife outside of National Parks and Ngorongoro Conservation Area for the past thirty years.
