The World Has Malaria - ClimateConscious

The Tanzanian Maasai community of Terrat, Simanjiro, have experienced the impacts of climate change. Droughts have become longer and more intense and many have lost their cattle. Maasai from Kenya had to come to Terrat in search for pastures, because here the community have a plain plan. By conserving their pastures and allowing wildlife to graze there in the wet season they have created a win-win situation. The community gains an alternative income from tourism and the pastures are preserved for the dry seasons alleviating the impacts of the increased droughts brought by a changing climate.
