Conservation Lake Tanganyika
Ndole Bay Lodge
is the driving force behind conservation in Nsumbu National Park. Over
time we have come to understand that to preserve the natural resource
that is Lake Tanganyika, a wider more comprehensive approach was needed.
The idea of forming a fully inclusive conservation society has been
growing for some time and has finally become a reality in 2012.
CLT aims “to
promote and preserve the biodiversity of Lake Tanganyika for the
sustainable benefit of its inhabitants through a partnership with the
community and GRZ.” Nsumbu National Park in the south western corner of
the lake is identified as a vital area for biodiversity conservation of
the greater Lake Tanganyika area; and it is here where the focus of CLT
We believe that Conservation Lake Tanganyika can
provide a bridge between the immediate needs of the area human
communities and the protection that is urgently required to ensure the
recovery of wildlife and fish populations to optimum carrying capacities
at which they will be usable in a sustainable manner for the benefit of
the local people.
For our dream to
become reality we need help in preserving this Natural Wonder under
threat, if you have any interest in conservation, community development
or fisheries management there are opportunities for volunteers and
partnerships to achieve our goal. But most of all we need financial help
to get CLT off the ground and begin work before the destruction of one
of the world’s greatest natural wonders is irreparable.
