FZS aims to boost the Serengeti's eco-system
The Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS) will embark on a ten-year project aimed at boosting the eco-system of the Serengeti National Park, it has been revealed.
Bosses at the German organisation have stated that the Tanzanian region is one of the most important natural plains in the world and extensive effort is needed to ensure the multitude of wild creatures that roam the park are protected.
One of the highlights of any luxury safari in Tanzania is the chance to see the "big five" in their natural habitat.
The Serengeti National Park is a magical place at any time of the year, but it takes on added significance when the Great Wildebeest Migration takes place, as hundreds of thousands of the species leave the area en masse in search of better grazing conditions in Kenya.
Director of the FZS Dr Christof Schenck told Daily News that most people in Germany regard the Serengeti as the best nature park in the world and they, like many other wildlife enthusiasts, are keen to see it preserved as much as possible.
