The conflict between conventional conservation strategies and indigenous conservation systems: the case study of Ngorongoro Conservation Area

The research at hand was carried out with the aim of exploring issues surrounding conservation and the rights of the Maasai pastoralists in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA). The research was particularly aimed at exploring conventional and indigenous conservation strategies that are currently in place with the superior objective of evolving an efficacious conservation stratagem that will ensure sustainable conservation and respect of the rights of the indigenous people. To arrive at the desired objective, it became imperative to expose, albeit in a nutshell, the administrative and legislative history of the NCA. It was particularly important to discuss the conventional and customary methods of conservation with a view to constructing a mixed variable between the two that calls for a meaningful system for sustainable conservation and development. Problems that the pastoralists in Ngorongoro are facing currently in view of present conservation formulae in place will be also be discussed. The research will also chart out recommendations on how best the present conservation approaches can be changed for the betterment of conservation and the livelihood of the indigenous people in the area.
