Abstract:The partnership between Tanzania and the Frankfurt Zoological Society, a German NGO, in saving and managing the Serengeti ecosystem has been a major socioeconomic success. The Serengeti is now supporting about 40 percent of the tourism industry in Tanzania and 25 percent of the foreign income of Tanzania. The Serengeti tourism industry supports the direct employment of about 50,000 people in Tanzanian tourism industry. Furthermore, the revenues from the park help support human development in the buffer zones around the park. This also directly benefits at least 50,000 impoverished, local people. Their increased prosperity also helps to restore and maintain law and order, and this further attracts local investment and development and contributes to poverty alleviation.
