Last year’s victory by the conservation community to block the building of a road across the Serengeti was appealed by the government of Tanzania. Continued filings by the lawyer representing the interests to conserve the park have been submitted. On June 10, the East African Court of Justice announced it will make its decision public at an open court session at the East African Community Headquarters in Arusha Tanzania. The decision is to be made on July 29th, 2015.
The Africa Network for Animal Welfare along with supporters from Serengeti Watch, Love Animals, and many others including ANAW-USA, remain hopeful that the appeal will be denied closing another chapter on the continued pressure for commercial development of this wilderness area. It is our mandate to forge on to protect the world’s largest migration of this kind for the millions of animals migrating between Tanzania and Kenya.
