WWF recently learned that the Tanzanian government wants to build a large hydropower dam at the heart of the Selous, a large reserve in Tanzania. This will threaten the many animals that live there--especially elephants and lions. But YOU can help.

In 2014, UNESCO placed Selous Game Reserve on the List of World Heritage in Danger. It is facing severe threats from industrial-scale poaching and other harmful activities that must be stopped. Tanzania and the international community should stand together to safeguard the environmental, social and economic values that Selous provides.
