The research in Mkomazi is part of an on-going programme co-ordinated jointly by the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) and the Tanzanian Department of Wildlife.
The Society got involved when the Tanzanian government (condemned as the reserve has lost much of its game and been ravaged by fires), came to them in 1989 for help in undertaking a major geographical study of the area in order to collect information to prepare a long-term management plan for the future of the reserve.
The programme has remained a Anglo-Tanzanian venture with joint directors Mr Bukari Mbano, director of wildlife in the Tanzanian Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, and Dr. Malcolm Coe, a leading ecologist from St Peterís College, Oxford.
