African People & Wildlife

Trees as a human-wildlife conflict prevention strategy in Tanzania.

The project will create Living Walls for 51 new households in northern Tanzania, which involves growing 7,463 trees. Living Walls are environmentally friendly corrals that keep livestock safe for rural families in northern Tanzania. They are built by growing a circle of Commiphora trees to serve as posts for chain link fencing. As the trees grow, they add height to the wall and create an impenetrable barrier. Living Walls prevent livestock attacks by large carnivores with a 99% success rate.
