Support for our Native birds in Tanzania
All that desire to support native birds from Tanzania can either donate to organizations with the goal to protect endangered wildlife and habitats.
The other way is spreading an awareness about our magnificent birds and find ways to help as individuals like keeping a clean environment. We need more protected areas and national parks and focus on more protection in conservation areas that exist.
