Growing our projects...

ANTI-POACHING a collaborative approach with joint training and patrols with various national and private organisations in our region.

HUMAN-WILDLIFE CONFLICT RESOLUTION is a growing concern and one we seek to combat with predator-proof bomas, lion sentinels, elephant persuasion to protect crops as well as educating communities and providing alternative means of support (employment and training opportunities to generate income).

RESEARCH is conducted within a collaborative approach and includes various collaring projects and camera traps for ecological monitoring.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT within a framework of active listening, holistic education, empowering women and children as well as innovative approaches to social involvement. Projects include supporting schools and education programmes, clothing drives, the Chem Chem Soccer Cup and training through tourism.
