Peter Pascal Maziku - Consultant Botanist
Having studied botany at the Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA) in 1999, Peter started his career on a project to map plant taxonomy in the Tarangire ecosystem. This partnership between the National Herbarium and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) spent two years mapping this important ecosystem and gave Peter the chance to learn the importance of accurate data gathering as a tool for conservation management. The final output of this work was a botanical guidebook to Tarangire National Park.
Peter has worked for the African Wildlife Foundation in the Burunge Wildlife Management Area, carrying out resource planning and vegetation surveys as well as creating a tool for biodiversity monitoring. Peter has also mapped the vegetation of the Yeada Valley area using AFRICOVER satellite imagery.
In all of his consultancy work, Peter has shown the importance of combining academic field work whilst engaging with remote communities in a sensitive manner. Peter has been leading the Carbon Tanzania team in conducting the vegetation sampling for above ground biomass (AGB) using Winrock methodologies.
