Saving Africa’s Nature (SANA) in Tanzania

is a non-governmental organization registered in 2008 with a focus of promoting local communities participation in conservation.  SANA works with communities living in ecological niche areas in developing sustainable solutions that protect biodiversity while improving livelihoods.

Our vision

is to create a world where all living things co-exist in a balanced relationship and therefore to have a long-standing impact. Communities living in ecological niche areas must acquire knowledge and understanding for them to notice the value of Nature and their responsibility to protect it. We believe in finding sustainable solutions to meet the survival needs of communities’ model’s trustworthiness hence an educated and empowered Community can assume responsibility for protecting Nature.

Our mission

SANA’s mission is to restore the ecological balance of the endangered Kikwati Wildlife Corridor which provided a vegetation based habitat that facilitated movement of wildlife species from Saadani National Park to Wami Mbiki Wildlife Management Area. 

The Kikwati Wildlife Corridor offers a vegetation based habitat that facilitates the movement of wildlife species from Saadani National Park to Wami Mbiki Wildlife Management Area. The restoration of the corridor will provide the opportunity for connectivity between small isolated populations in the wild. This can result in an increase in wildlife genetic variation and lower inbreeding depression risks thus maintaining the ecological integrity of Saadani National Park.
