Tanzania’s wildlife is central to its economy, with the national tourism industry generating more than $2 billion in total revenue annually. Wildlife is particularly important in northern Tanzania, which serves as the tourist launching pad to key destinations, such as Kilimanjaro, Serengeti, Lake Manyara, Tarangire and Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
Yet despite the importance of wildlife to the economy, poaching, population growth, and habitat loss, pose serious threats to wildlife.Thus LEAT through different programs collaborate with law enforcement agencies in protection of wildlife in Tanzania.
LEAT carries out environmental and natural resources legal and policy research, advocacy, and selected public interest litigation. Its membership is drawn from public interest spirited individuals from all disciplines of the environment and natural resources. Over the years, LEAT has transformed itself to become the premier public interest environmental and natural resources management and protection organization in Tanzania.
