This chapter introduces the Serengeti National Park, its global significance as a biodiversity site, a Protected Area that retains an almost complete biota, and its importance to the Tanzanian economy. Serengeti National Park is under threat, however, and the argument for the move from Protected Area Conservation to conservation in human dominated ecosystems is looked at. This chapter establishes that, due to the problems with Protected Area Conservation, conservation in the 21st century must embrace human-made system, through other conservation models. Yet, some of these models still are problematic, such as Community-based Conservation. Thus, this chapter establishes that the debate lies in whether sustainable human landscapes can be created and whether Protected Areas are a necessary component of these.
