Wildebeest and the Great Migration
Wildebeest and zebras and some other ungulates migrate to better pastures in order to survive. They graze in areas in the south and then move on to the north, and end up in Masai Mara, where they give birth. Some time later, they return. Maasai don't migrate with their cattle to Masai Mara because there is a disease that cattle can get from the placentas of wildebeest who have given birth.
The new Polotet Game Reserve (Red line in above map) displaced a village of Maasai people, led to a day of violence where people were shot at and killed, and children and an old man were lost.
WILDEBEEST and 30X30 -- The Great Migration
The wildebeest population was 1.2 million in 1975 and 1.5 million as of 2020.
Lake Manyara - If the Maasai are displaced by hunters and hotels, will this beautiful place still exist?
Will too many tourists and game hunters vehicles + hotels interfere with the Great migration?
Will the ecological system here fail due to climate change?
Gutenbergia cordifolia (yellow flower in the background) is not native to Tanzania. It has no Maasai name like native plants do. However in Kenya, the Maasai call it Namurdelo. Maasai know native plants well because their livestock's well-being depends on the Maasai expert knowledge of their environment. When they burn, it benefits all ungulate wildlife, not just cattle.
The Maasai used to burn noxious weed, but until recently, the NCA administration refused to do so. And when they did some burning, it was in the wrong time of the year.

Reduction of social services, restriction of grazing land, stoppage of subsidized maize, and distracting Human Rights observers are human rights crimes of the government under Samia.
