OVERVIEW

One of the key reasons of creating the Mara Naboisho Conservancy was to aid the protection and conservation of the wildlife and landscape. The conservancy covers an important wildlife migratory corridor for the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem supporting both the north and south wildebeest migrations.

There are currently two main projects established and running in the Mara Naboisho Conservancy. One focusses on the need to control and reduce the number of human-lion conflict encounters where Maasai are retaliating against lions for the killing of their livestock. The second project monitors the movement and location of the vast herds of elephant found in the Mara Naboisho region with an emphasis on migratory patterns and poaching prevention.

There are more projects planned for the conservancy, including a cheetah tracking program, but at the moment it is just the two. Watch this space for details of any new developments.
