Ruaha River Disaster

In 1993, the Great Ruaha River, which is the lifeline of the
Ruaha National Park and a vital source of hydroelectricity for
entire country stopped flowing for the first time in living
memory. The situation has now deteriorated so that the river
becomes a series of pools in the dy season and consistently
ceases to flow for 100 days a year.

Foxes Community and Wildlife Conservation are committed to monitoring the situation and are taking steps to stabilize and reverse the causes. Recent lobbying has secured the Government commitment to upgrade the protection status of the Usangu wetland and other catchment areas bordering the Ruaha National Park that will make Ruaha not just the largest park in Tanzania but also in Africa.
