HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON TALKS WITH Patrick Bergin, executive officer of the AWF Community Conservation Service Center in Tanzania and Bettie Loibooki of the Tanzania National Parks (TANAPA) staff, who along with Alan Kijazi of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority, briefed the first lady on African conservation issues during a visit to Serengeti National Park.
Tanzania was one of several stops Mrs. Clinton and daughter Chelsea made during a trip to Africa in March. Bergin reported on the successful joint effort of AWF and TANAPA to promote community involvement in wildlife conservation throughout the country's park system. Mrs. Clinton expressed her appreciation for the briefing, Bergin reports, "but more for the work that we do daily."
