Safari Club Interview with Tanzania’s Imani Nkuwi


SCI’s Marc Watts conducts a conservation conversation with Tanzania’s leading wildlife expert, Imani Richard Nkuwi. Mr. Nkuwi, a Director of TAWA, discusses with Watts how the 2014 importation ban on Tanzania lion and elephant trophies into the U.S. has impacted his country, its wildlife populations, the ability for communities to sustain a livelihood and poaching. The Tanzania government is asking the U.S. to lift the ban. This revealing interview was conducted in Washington D.C. following Mr. Nkuwi’s presentation which he made to the International Wildlife Conservation Council, an advisory body to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, in September 2018.
