    Amefanya kazi nyingi sana za conservation Tanzania for almost 30 yrs kama sikosei. Aliwahi pia kuwa UNDP hapo Dsm chini ya GEF (Global Environmental Facility) katika kusaidia miradi inayohusu conservation and livelihood. Ukizungumzia program yeyote kubwa ya conservation katika Tanzania for the last 20 yrs mchango wake wa mawazo na influence ulikuwepo.

    Mpaka wakati anafariki alikuwa Program Coordinator wa ICRAF Headquarter pale Nairobi.

    Dear Friends,

    I kew Dr. Alan Rodgers since 1992. Ni mtu muhimu sana kwa watanzania. He fought for our development especially in the protection of our forests and natural biodiversity. He will be laid to rest tommorrow afternoon at the Langata Cemetery, close to the Kenya Wildlife Services Office and the Nairobi National Park.

    A number of other options are being considered to commemorate Alan, including publication of a special edition of the Arc Journal, and setting up a scholarship fund for East Africa students interested in pursuing a career in Biodiversity Conservation. Nike Doggart from the Tanzanian Forest Conservation Group is preparing an article celebrating Alan's amazing life, to be published in the next issue of the Arc journal. He would like this article be reproduced in one of an international paper, such as the Guardian.

    Alan has worked tirelessly to promote conservation in East Africa and India. A full list of his accomplishments would be a long one indeed. A short list, which tells an amazing story about Alan: what a mark he has left on the World not only to Tanzanians.

    Alan started his career in 1965 as a Game Warden in the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania. He has some amazing stories to tell about that time, like the one of the lion and the virgin, and the hilarious antics of the Morogoro Rugby team, or his escapades flying in the Game Department aircraft. He later worked for the University of Dar Es Salaam, for many years in India (starting in 1984) with the Wildlife Institute of India as a UNDP-FAO consultant, and then with UNDP/ FAO –GEF in East Africa and more recently as the UNDP-GEF Technical Advisor for Biodiversity in East Africa, and as a Senior Adviser to ICRAF and UNDP in East Africa.

    - As a scientist, Alan Rodgers published prolifically. I have attached a rough publications list for him, which speaks by itself of his extraordinary breadth and detail of knowledge, ranging from primates to big mammals, to rangelands and forests in both East Africa and India, as well as conservation issues in general. The list needs to be cleaned up, and people could add other papers they know about but which are not mentioned. There are some very, very good papers in virtually inaccessible journals such as the Tanganyika Notes and Records, and it would be good if some of these could be scanned and placed on the web (particularly the paper on elephant control and ivory).
    - He was one of the pioneers of the application of remote sensing to discover patches of forest that were unknown to conservationists and biologists during the mid 1980s
    - He took a people centric view to conservation-- and played a major role in nesting conservation in the development agenda.

    In East Africa
    - He was one of the world experts on miombo ecology
    - He Set up the Tanzania Forest Working Group – which has played a major role in coordinating forest conservation in Tanzania.
    - He was a Founding member of the Tanzania Forest Conservation Group - now Tanzania's foremost forest conservation organization, playing a major role in supporting REDD in the country.
    - He did seminal research in the Eastern Arc Forests, which led to the creation of the Amani NR, Udzungwa NP and the Kilombero NR; he discovered a number of species new to science, including the Sanje Mangabey
    - He was a tireless provider of time and information to generations of young researchers
    - He provided tireless support to Zanzibar government - leading to the declaration of the Jozani NP
    - He set up the course in wildlife management at the Zoology Department of the University of Dar es Salaam
    - He realised that the Coastal Forests had a biodiversity importance in their own right at a time when most other biologists only had eyes for the Eastern Arc forests. When he worked at the GEF/ UNDP he put a lot of energy into effecting more conservation action in these forests.
    - He gave a vast amount of his time editing people's papers etc. while sitting in airport departure lounges on the way to his many meetings. He was an unceasing demander of quality, and I believe that through this he raised the standard of conservation and biological work in East Africa (he certainly raised the standard of the Coastal Forest book)
    - He was a vast store of knowledge on wildlife, biodiversity and conservation issues, and therefore a good resource for researchers to tap into, particularly as he was willing to share obscure but important papers from his personal library
    - He collected quite a large number of plants specimens in the Selous, Udzungwas (Sanje), Ulugurus (Kimboza) as well as various Coastal Forests including a number of undescribed species. Phil Clark remembers seeing an unidentified Cynometra with very large leaflets in the UDSM herbarium; it would be nice if that was one day named after him if it turns out to be a new species.

    In India

    - He worked for many years at the Wildlife Institute of India in the 1980s, as a UNDP-FAO Expert and was instrumental in laying a very strong foundation for this important institution. After the first regular faculty recruitment when a group of 15 young scientists joined the Institute, he took upon himself to train and guide all of them in the art, science and practice of wildlife management.
    - The field techniques tour in Sariska, which he started in 1986 has been institutionalized over the years and now forms one of the most important training programmes undertaken by the Institute.
    - He was the key architect in developing ‘wildlife science' in India and his contribution in starting the M.Sc. in Wildlife Science at the Wildlife Institute of India is a very significant one. This programme has produced a vast array of competent biologists, who are now significantly contributing to the cause of wildlife conservation, across the globe.
    - His monumental work: a ‘Biogeographical Classification of India' is now the most cited and used document in the field of wildlife conservation in India.
    - He co-wrote, with HS Panwar, the voluminous 'Planning a Protected Area Network in India"-which has pride of place on his bookshelf in Nairobi.

    Alan cared about people: he was incredibly kind and generous to his friends, and to those who were less fortunate than he was. There was a distinct personal quality about him that made him approachable and fun to be with despite his larger than life reputation and the high position that he reached. I think he was good at spotting committed and talented people, and he did what he could to encourage and support them on in their careers. There must be many people who have a lot to thank him for.

    He deserved to be called Professor!! He contributed greatly, he used his career perfectly. R.I.P Dr. Rodgers.

    Kweli tumepoteza mtu mashuhuri na muhimu kwa Tanzania. Huyu kweli alikuwa Profesor.

    Sijui Nchimbi na wenzake (Internet PHD) wakiona CV kama ya hiyo wanasemaje?

    Hiki ni kichwa kweli!

    CV yake na hata machapisho yake ni testimony ya uzalendo wake ktk kupenda nature! Uzalendo sii rangi tu nyeusi kama Mwafrika ila ni ni nchango wake ktk utafiti na ugunduzi!

    Je Rodgers alikuwa Mkenya au Mtz au wa nchi gani? Naona atazikwa Kenya?

    RIP

    Sina hakika ni mzaliwa wa nchi gani, ila Kenya jamaa wengi wameweka makazi yao hapo. Hata Deputy Director General wa ICRAF Tony Simons amejiimarisha Nairobi nafikiri na uraia pia kapata ingawa yeye ni mzaliwa wa New Zealand
