We enable strong and thriving conservancies across the Greater Mara Ecosystem.
This is rooted in honoring and respecting the Maasai people and their culture.
We recognize that in order to create impact we need to build trust and to establish partnerships through open communication and transparency. That is why our work is based on meaningful and inclusive participation and engagement with the conservancy members as well as a wide spectrum of stakeholders in this critical landscape.
Viable conservancies require good governance structures and systems, solid management, strong revenue streams, and transparent benefit sharing. If conservancy revenue is optimized and diversified, conservation will become the optimal land use and conservancies will thrive, resulting in increased wildlife trends, improved ecological health and positive social and economic outcomes for communities and the tourism sector alike.
Our focus is on the following key areas of work, with and on behalf of stakeholders:
- Sustaining, Developing and Creating Conservancies and Conservation Areas
- Facilitating, Coordinating and Implementing Social and Economic Development
- Advocating for a Better Conservancy Framework
A cultural landscape where communities and partners secure wildlife and sustainable livelihoods for a better future.
To conserve the greater Maasai Mara ecosystem, through a network of protected areas, for the prosperity of all – biodiversity and wildlife, the local population, and recreation and tourism for the nation of Kenya.
