QUOTE "Tanzania sparked an international uproar last summer when it announced plans to move forward with the construction of a 33-mile (53-kilometer) stretch of commercial highway that would cut through Serengeti National Park and potentially disrupt the annual migration of more than a million wildebeest traveling in search of grass and water."

If you have a question for the panel, please add it below, you won't get a better chance to share your concerns with Boyd or Dave. We are hoping you can join us, and you might be invited into the hangout with us to speak with the Serengeti Watch team live.
