Hadza Hunter Gatherers

ESSENCE:

Working with the Hadza, one of Africa’s last hunter gatherer communities, our partners Carbon Tanzania are reducing deforestation over some 35,000 hectares of forest in the Yaeda Valley. This area has been home to the Hadza for thousands of years. They have a unique language and culture and their forest home is currently under threat of deforestation from outsiders looking for new grazing pastures and from farmers clearing land for crop production. These forests provide food and shelter for the Hadza who are deeply connected to their land – without these ancient forests the Hadza’s culture and lifestyle would be lost forever.

IMPACT:
