Loss of space and connectivity, increasing development pressures, and impacts of climate change are threatening Kenya’s iconic wildlife, its multi-billion tourism industry, and livelihoods for rural communities.

Kenya Wildlife Conservancy Destinations offer hope.

A Kenya Wildlife Conservancy Destinations island 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.

With sixty-five percent (65%) of Kenya’s wildlife living in community and private lands, conservancies provide connected landscapes that complement national parks and reserves while enabling communities to benefit from wildlife management and in turn be at the heart of championing conservation efforts.

In Kenya today, conservancies are a recognized land use under the Wildlife Act 2013, making them an attractive land-use option for communities and landowners as they offer improved land and resource rights and access to incentives.

By placing communities at the center of wildlife conservation and improving conservation incentives, Wildlife Conservancy Destinations in Kenya are securing livelihoods while reversing wildlife decline, resulting in the protection of Kenya’s iconic wildlife for future generations.

In the Maasai Mara, for example, 15 conservancies protect over 450,000 acres of critical habitat for the great Serengeti-Mara wildebeest migration.

This has seen the lion population double over the last decade and 3,000 households earn more than $4 million annually from tourism.

A similar success story is unveiled along with the Coastal Region of Kenya where local communities are protecting endangered animals such as the Hirola Antelope, resulting in the doubling of the population of the endangered Hirola in just three years.
