About FORS

FORS was founded in 1984 by a small group of expats living in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania. Back then, the Society’s main goal was to support the anti-poaching campaign in Ruaha National Park. Over the years, as poaching decreased and tourism increased, the park and its rangers became more self-sufficient. In 1999, recognizing that pressure on the ecosystem had shifted from poaching to the sudden annual drying of the Great Ruaha River, we expanded our work to focus on environmental education in 24 primary schools and villages. Through teacher training, participatory learning for students and community outreach, we target the people who live in the communities that border the park, aiming to raise awareness and change habits that greatly impact Ruaha’s wildlife and biodiversity.
