Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) have the potential to benefit both people and wildlife in Tanzania. But are Tanzanian communities earning enough from WMAs to want to protect the wildlife that live on their land? This policy brief addresses this question by examining two WMAs in the Tarangire ecosystem and looking at their performance and revenue streams. This reveals that while communities are earning some income, the WMAs do not yet have enough funds to cover management and wildlife protection costs. It highlights the importance of improving WMA revenue flows to make them financially viable and able to deliver more benefits to their members as well as improved conservation outcomes to government, tourism investors, and others.

​UCRT works to empower marginalised people in the rangelands of northern Tanzania to secure rights to their natural resources and land.
