Adopt an Acre for Wildlife

,

Let’s Keep Conservation Alive

Over the last few months, our world has been exposed to a degree of difficulty that no one could have anticipated. Conservation & Tourism, have been the most affected industries with losses estimated to reach hundreds of billions US$, by the end of this year (UNWTO, 2020).

With 65% of Kenya’s wildlife on private and community land, the need for continued wildlife conservation has never been greater than at this time. Threats such as poaching, animal hunting for bushmeat, land grabbing & development on critical wildlife habitat have surged during this period. With the finance of conservation and protection activities crippled; it’s now up to us to ensure our wildlife and wildlands are protected.

Adopt an Acre Initiative

As the name suggests, an individual is able to adopt an acre(s) of land and hold it in trust for the purpose of wildlife conservation.
For as little as $5, one is able to protect 1 acre of critical land for a whole year. Currently, we have 31 families graciously leasing 2,200 acres of land at the southern side of Nairobi National Park. This area makes up our conservancy, Naretunoi, and the co-operative community members form the Naretunoi Community Conservancy (N.C.C). The conservancy serves as an essential part of the Nairobi National Park ecosystem.

The Wildlife Foundation has engaged the neighboring Maasai community in an innovative wildlife lease program that offers compensation of $5/acre for keeping their lands open. This setup enables the local community to benefit financially from wildlife conservation and preserve their lands for pastoralism. It also resolves the major issue in wildlife conservation (habitat loss) by creating a critical open space for Nairobi National Park species to exist & thrive- a true win-win situation.


With your help, an acre of critical land will be conserved.
It might not seem like much, but 20,000 people put together we’ll have 20,000 acres of protected land at Kenya’s capital.

Adopt and help sustain a healthy, wild Nairobi National Park ecosystem!


Why wait ?
