The Maasai Mara Wildlife Conservancies Association (MMWCA) is a Kenyan commitment, to conserve the greater Maasai Mara ecosystem, through a network of protected areas (conservancies and conservation areas).
Our Impact in the Greater Mara
The number of conservancies has increased from 8 in 2015 to the current 15 in 2019.
The area under conservancies increased to over 1450 km2 in 2019 from 970 km2 in 2015, an area almost the same size as that of MMNR.
In a short span of two years, the number of tourism partners has increased from 36 in 2015 to 49 in 2018.
Two Major ones
MMWCA has been able to secure two major wildlife corridors in the last one year.
The number of landowners has increased from 3,000 in 2015 to 14,528 where 223 are women.
The number of rangers is currently 280, up from 178 in 2015.

After signing a memorandum of understanding with Maasai Mara University, 40 students have been awarded scholarships through MMWCA's Mara Vocational training program. This will enhance sustainable conservation and biodiversity for a Greater Mara. @KWCAKenya @USAID @Nature_Africa pic.twitter.com/V7GW…
