DAR ES SALAAM March 6th (Xinhua) – On the occasion of World Wildlife Day, Tanzania urged on Friday wildlife conservation actors around the world to join forces for wildlife conservation.

According to Mohamed Mchengerwa, Minister of Natural Resources and Tourism, the Tanzanian government is ready to work with wildlife conservation actors around the world to protect wild animals.

Taking the floor in the Lindi region as part of activities marking the Day, the Tanzanian minister noted that the theme for this year’s World Wildlife Day, “Partnerships for Wildlife Conservation”, was a clear appeal to wildlife conservation actors to amplify their conservation efforts. He also said that Tanzania has set aside 32.5% of its land area for wildlife conservation, which includes 22 national parks, 29 nature reserves, 25 wetlands, 38 wildlife management areas and 3 Ramsar sites.

World Wildlife Day is a United Nations international Day dedicated to all the world’s wild animals and plants and the contribution they make to the life and health of the planet.
