The Mara Conservancy plays an active role in initiating and encouraging conservation efforts within the Maasai Mara National Reserve. A list of our ongoing achievements and goals include among others:
- A clamp down on poaching in the Mara Triangle and the surrounding area.
- Improving infrastructure by grading a network of roads within the Triangle, as well as access roads to camps and lodges outside of the Triangle.
- Maintain a network of secondary roads and tracks to improve wildlife viewing.
- Restore existing ranger stations and install renewable energy and water harvesting systems.
- Establish a transparent and modern (IT based) revenue collection systems.
- Strengthen relationships between the Reserve and the surrounding areas by encouraging community projects and reward schemes for co-habiting with wildlife.
- Encourage sound eco-tourism principles among camps and lodges.
Working with local leaders, communities, and tourism partners, the Mara Conservancy uses effective and efficient management methods that enhance the economical value of conservation to better protect the Mara Triangle and its surrounding ecosystem.
We see the Mara Triangle as an integral part of the Greater Mara Ecosystem, which deserves a healthy environment that benefits both people and wildlife.
The Mara Conservancy is committed to helping local communities adopt a sustainable approach to conservation by creating a management model that is transparent, accountable and values wildlife.
We believe in responsible tourism, sustainable development, good guiding practices, and strive for an environment that is free from the threats of poaching. This is achieved by fostering good working relationships with local communities and tourism stakeholders, recognising the worth of an appreciated workforce, and understanding the urgent need to protect our wildlife.
We want to ensure that the Maasai Mara remains an important ecosystem for wildlife, tourism, local communities, and for Kenya.
