Tanzania Natural Resource Forum (TNRF) and its members express their deep sorrow following the death of Wayne Lotter, founder and chairman of PAMS Foundation. Wayne Lotter was shot and killed by unknown people on Wednesday 16th August 2017 in Dar es Salaam.

It’s widely known that for decades, Wayne dedicated his life to protecting Africa’s wildlife, supporting government initiatives on anti-poaching and worked closely with natural resources actors and partners to ensure wildlife is well protected and conserved.

He undertook tremendous work in Tanzania protecting elephant and other wildlife, establishing himself as a trusted supporter and friend to field rangers and the communities adjacent to wildlife protected areas.
