Mara Conservancy

The mandate of the Mara Conservancy  worked out with the Maasai, agrees that it will undertake all aspects of protected area management. The Conservancy is the first public/private sector partnership of its kind in the region and has led to an active and cooperative partnership between conservation professionals and the local Maasai community, as it initiates conservation efforts within the Maasai Mara NR. NWNL Founding Director Alison Jones has actively supported the Mara Conservancy since its inception in 2001.
