Where We Work:


The Tsavo-Mkomazi landscape straddles the boundary between Kenya and Tanzania. It is one of the world’s largest protected areas, home to more than a third of Kenya’s elephants and nearly a fifth of its black rhinos. Stresses include infrastructure development, climate change impacts, and freshwater availability.

Our holistic approach includes the following activities:

  • Partnering with communities through collaborative land-use planning, alternative livelihood development, and youth and education programs
  • Reducing human-wildlife conflict
  • Strengthening park rangers’ eco-monitoring and data collection
  • Providing counter-wildlife-trafficking support, including judicial and prosecutorial training
  • Supporting cross-border anti-poaching collaboration

These comprehensive strategies prioritize the protection of elephants, giraffes, rhinos, and lions—work that benefits other species as well and safeguards natural resources for current and future generations.
