Dear Members, friends in conservation, supporters and well wishers,

TATO received an advice from Regional Commissioner Hon. Magesa Mullongo that the forthcoming March for Elephants and Rhinos will be more positively impactful if done on Nyerere day, 14th October 2014, instead of October 4th 2014 as planned earlier.

Without hesitation and further delay, TATO Board agreed on the advise by Honorable Magesa Mullongo, The Arusha Regional Commissioner.

Basing on this view, TATO wish to inform you that the event will be held on Tuesday, 14th October 2014. The march is scheduled to start at the Cultural Heritage near the Tanzania National Parks (TANAPA) headquarters at 7.30 a.m., walk down the center of Arusha town along Sokoine/Uhuru road to the Clock Tower, turning north on Boma road, then on to Makongoro Road passing by the City council and Regional Administration officers, on to the Arusha Declaration Monument (Mwenge), ending in the Sheikh Amri Abeid Karume Stadium grounds.

Be informed accordingly.

We deeply regret and apologize for the inconveniences these changes caused to some of you.

"The survival of our wildlife is a matter of grave concern to us all in Africa. These wild creatures amid the wild places they inhabit are not only important as a source of wonder and inspiration but are an integral part of our natural resources and of our future livelihood and well being. In accepting the trusteeship of our wildlife we solemnly declare that we will do everything in our power to make sure our children's grandchildren will be able to enjoy this rich and precious inheritance. The conservation of wildlife and wild places calls for specialist knowledge, trained manpower and money and we look to other nations to cooperate in this important task - the success or failure of which not only affects the continent of Africa but the rest of the world as well". - Mwalimu Julius Nyerere
