OVERVIEW

Sixty  five percent (65%) of Kenya’s wildlife occur on wildlife conservancies.

A wildlife conservancy is land managed by an individual landowner, a body or corporate , group of owners or a community for purposes of wildlife conservation and other compatible land uses to better livelihoods.

Conservancies are a recognized land use under Kenya’s Wildlife Act 2013 making them an attractive land use option for communities and land owners as they offer improved land and resource rights and access to incentives.

When people are willing stewards, wildlife flourish, when wildlife thrive, benefits emerge and people prosper, the converse is also true as is proven in many of our member conservancies.
