Selous is facing changes – from increased conservation status to a huge hydro-electric dam being built on the pristine Rufiji River
Azura Selous, a luxury game lodge situated along the banks of the Great Ruaha River in the remote Selous Game Reserve in southern Tanzania, has announced its sudden closure due to the unexpected arrival of loggers in the area.
The Tanzania Forest Services (TFS) has invited tenders for large-scale logging in the Selous Game Reserve, a world-renowned wildlife area, where it plans to construct a large hydropower plant.
One of African conservation’s most pressing issues is ensuring that elephants and humans can coexist peacefully in the same area
Some 481 miles to the southeast of Tanzania’s iconic Serengeti National Park lies the lesser well-known Selous Game Reserve. But for many species in the Selous, all is far from well. Results from a wildlife census conducted in October and November, 2013, show a dramatic decline in elephants in particular.
