The delegation led by the Senator of Michigan Ms. Debbie Stabenow who is also the Chairperson of the US Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry will have an opportunity to witness firsthand the vital role of conservation and good natural resources management in promoting sustainable economic development.

The US Senate delegation will also specifically demonstrate the challenges of combating the Wildlife Trafficking Crisis and methods for mitigation at the local, regional, national and the international level.

While in Serengeti, the delegation will visit sites of local conservation projects, view elephants and rhinos in their natural habitats, meet with leaders on the front lines in the war on poaching, and visit community projects that are working to preserve their natural resources, including threatened species. They will also learn about human-wildlife conflict and other issues of importance to local people.

Other Senators in the delegation includes Ms. Cantwell (Washington); Ms. Amy Klobuchar (Minnesota); Ms. Heidi Heitkamp (North Dakota) and Ms. Maize Hirono (Hawaii).KIJAZI ADD
