Two research organisations based in Tanzania have won funding of more than US$300,000 from a United States-based foundation to conduct research on pollinators and biodiversity in the country.

The JRS Biodiversity Foundation announced the winners on 18 September. The winning organisations are the Tanzania Wildlife Research Institute and the Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology.

“Pollination from wild and cultivated pollinators is a crucially important ecosystem service for human food production, yet data on wild pollinators in Africa is scarce and difficult to access,” JRS said in a statement.
