East Africa is fast losing its wildlife. Threats such as loss of habitat and poaching are increasingly threatening to wipe out the wildlife, which tourism is hinged on.

We are working with key partners to build community awareness, strengthen institutional arrangements and improve benefit sharing. Furthermore, we are keen on reducing human wildlife conflict and stem the tide of poaching.

To this far, we have contributed significantly to a sound policy environment for the sustainable management of the region’s wildlife.

We also contributed in the establishment of a rhino sanctuary in Lake Nakuru Park, translocation of the critically endangered Roan Antelope to Ruma Park, pushed for the establishment of the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) and provision of anti-poaching equipment to KWS and community wildlife conservancies among many others initiatives and interventions.
