For my third and final week in Tanzania, I had the privilege of spending time at the Manyara Ranch Conservancy. Previously owned by the Tanzanian government, the ranch was established by AWF in 2001 to address the threats of degradation and habitant fragmentation.
This past week has felt like one long safari trip that I never want to end. The amount of wildlife, people, and stories I have encountered humbles me greatly and I can’t believe I still have two weeks left.
Where do I even begin? I feel like I lived a lifetime is just a matter of days. I’m so incredibly blessed and humbled to embark on amazing opportunity thanks to Nat Geo WILD and the African Wildlife Foundation.
AWF"s Kathleen Garrigan sits down to ask filmmaker Dan Duran, winner of the WILD to INSPIRE film competition, a few questions ahead of his trip to Tanzania this December.
“AWF approaches conservation at a large-landscape scale.”
How many times have I heard that said about our work? How many times have I written that myself, when writing about AWF’s approach to conservation?
