The aim of tumitengo is to promote, support and further the development of sustainable management of natural resources, thereby striving to advance rural development and livelihoods, to promote biodiversity conservation, through protection of endangered species, providing game meet as an alternative source of nutrients, providing recreational and aesthetic value and reducing poaching of wild animals
My team is a group of self motivated individuals who are trying to better the livelihoods of vulnerable people in society. We are participating in this challenge to help source funding and special guidance in relation to our proposal. We are more focused on safe guarding natural resources, so we have come up with a proposal that will help safe guard wild animals and provide an alternative source of beef as compared to beef from cattle, goats and sheep which are becoming more difficult to keep due to climate change which has adversely hit my country. We are proposing to start up a game ranch that will protect endangered animals, provide recreational and aesthetic beauty, hence boosting tourism and an effective game meat production by incorporating wild endangered species with animals that are not endangered.
