3 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Background Information Tanzania is endowed with a diversity of wild animals that are found in diverse habitats throughout the country. This wildlife resource has socio-economic and cultural importance not only at national level but globally. Wildlife has a great potential for tourism, wildlife farming and ranching, and export of live animals, and offers considerable employment opportunities in various wildlife-based businesses. The wildlife sector has the potential to play a substantial role in the national economy and it is projected to contribute up to 5% of the GDP by the year Thus, the sector can greatly contribute to poverty reduction and improve the quality of life of the people of Tanzania. Currently about 28% of the total land area in Tanzania has been set-aside as wildlife-protected areas including National Parks, Game Reserves, Game Controlled Areas, and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. In order to achieve good conservation and sustainable utilization of the wildlife resources a pool of well-trained human resources in the sector is required. However, the wildlife sector does not have enough human resources to carry out conservation activities. This calls for increased training particularly at advanced levels. The Programme The degree programme of Master Science in Wildlife Management and Conservation aims to train skilled human resource at an advanced level in wildlife management to alleviate the deficiency of high cadre human resource in the wildlife sector, but also have requisite entrepreneurial knowledge and skills to participate in the private sector. Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA) started offering Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree programme in Wildlife Management in Most of the graduates are potential candidates for this programme. In addition, the programme is designed to attract Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine graduates and BSc graduates in allied biological sciences. The programme is also likely to attract applicants from the rest of the East African countries and SADC regions. The expected enrolment is students per academic year. Full-time students will complete the degree in two years, while part-time students will have up to three years. In the first year of study, students will take a minimum of 16 credits of taught courses, comprising of 11.5 credits of core courses and at least 5 credits of elective courses. During the second year, subject to approval of research proposals, students will conduct original research and write dissertations. This will allow specialization in different disciplines of wildlife management and conservation. Financial Implications and General Requirements The Faculty of Forestry and Nature Conservation will offer the course in collaboration with the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. The core teaching staff will include academic members of these two faculties but staff from other faculties will also be engaged in specialized courses depending on their expertise and specializations. Part time lecturers will be invited whenever certain expertise does not exist locally. Existing facilities are sufficient to initiate the programme but more will be needed later. Seminar rooms in both Faculties will be used for lectures and seminars. Training will also be conducted in the Zoology Laboratory already approved for construction. Most of the field practical training will be conducted within the nearby Mikumi National Park. At least 10 desktop computers and one Toyota Land Cruiser (Hardtop) costing Tshs 60 million will be needed within the next two years to provide adequate training for the 10 to 15 students per year. The fees for the MSc Wildlife Management and Conservation programme will be as per existing SUA postgraduate regulations. iii

4 1.0 INTRODUCTION Tanzania is endowed with a diversity of wild animals that are found in diverse habitats throughout the country. This wildlife resource has socio-economic and cultural importance not only at national level but globally. Apart from being a unique national heritage, wildlife has a great potential for tourism, wildlife farming and ranching, and export of live animals. Wildlife also offers considerable employment opportunities to society through a variety of wildlife-based businesses and contributes to livelihood of some communities. Realizing the importance and potential of wildlife, the Government of Tanzania has set aside about 28% of the total land area as wildlife protected areas (MNRT, 1998). These include National Parks, Game Reserves, Game Controlled Areas, and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area The wildlife sector has the potential to play a substantial role in the national economy and it is projected to contribute up to 5% of the GDP by the year 2025 (MNRT, 1998). Thus, the wildlife sector can greatly contribute to poverty reduction and improve the quality of life of the people of Tanzania. This requires good conservation and sustainable utilization of the wildlife resources that cannot be achieved without trained human resource at various levels in the sector. Although, Tanzania's wildlife sector has continued to grow since independence, it has continued to face a number of problems, which can be attributed to diverse factors, some of which have political, socialeconomic and cultural dimensions.. In addition, there has been rapid increase in human population in the country resulting into rapid increase in demand for land-based resources and an increase in wildlifelivestock and human interactions and emergence of diseases (Machange, 1988; Roelke-Parker, 1996; Fyumagwa et al., 2002). Furthermore, the wildlife sector human resource is less than 50% of the requirement and most of it is of low cadre, mainly trained as wildlife ecologists and or biologists (Boshe 1996, MNRT 1998). This has certainly resulted in part to the slow development of the wildlife sector in this country, as the current trend to modern wildlife conservation strategy demand for a multidisciplinary approach and requires the skills of other professionals. Training of professional cadre in wildlife related fields is carried out at the University of Dar-es-Salaam (Zoology and Wildlife Ecology) and Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA) (Wildlife Management, Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science). These graduates are among the potential candidates for the proposed programme. For the wildlife sector to build more capacity to conserve the wildlife resources, advanced training in the field of wildlife management and related fields is essential. In responding to this challenge, SUA proposes to start a Master of Science in Wildlife Management to address the problem of the human resource at a higher level in the wildlife sector. This programme is meant to be multi-disciplinary, versatile, flexible and attractive to many graduates from SUA and elsewhere who did life sciences degrees and are interested to work in the wildlife sector. The programme is also likely to attract applicants from the rest of the East African countries and SADC region. 2.0 JUSTIFICATION The establishment of the M.Sc. in Wildlife Management is pertinent due to the following reasons: (i) The wildlife resource requires competent human resource for effective conservation through good management and research. (ii) There is a large number of graduates in wildlife related fields who are eager to have advanced training in wildlife field. A survey conducted of some of the BSc. Wildlife Management graduates indicated that they supported the idea and would apply for the programme. Many of these candidates are currently forced to go abroad for MSc. degree in wildlife programmes. 1

5 (iii) (iv) (v) Wildlife institutions contacted indicated a need for the degree programme and a few were even ready to support the programme through part-time lecturing. The programme will build capacity for wildlife research by Tanzanians, which currently is mainly done by foreigners. The programme will also attract applicants from the East African countries, SADC region and other African countries. 3.0 OBJECTIVES 3.1 General Objective The main objective of the programme is to train human resource at an advanced level in wildlife management and conservation capable of effective planning and managing wildlife resources within and outside Tanzania. 3.2 Specific Objectives (i) To provide advanced training in various aspects of wildlife management, conservation and health. (ii) To equip graduates with entrepreneurial skills to work in various wildlife and allied sectors. 4.0 THE M.Sc.
