Summary

As COVID-19 makes its way around the globe and Kenya has closed its border, we at Ol Pejeta face an unprecedented crisis. Tourism revenues represent the majority of our income and funds most of our conservation and community work. We now anticipate a shortfall of USD 1.8 million in 2020 for essential operations. The last two northern white rhinos in the world are at risk! Our black rhino population of 133 is at risk. Our 36 chimpanzees are at risk. Please help us keep our organisation afloat.

Challenge

As COVID-19 pandemic spreads, we are faced with a major and unforeseen global challenge that affects people in all corners of the world. Ol Pejeta is no exception. We pride ourselves for being self-sustainable mostly from tourism but COVID-19 is having an impact on our sustainability model. With global travel restrictions tourism is now severely compromised. The impact is so significant that we won't be able to sustain all our efforts for too long.

Solution

Your support today is crucial to keep our rhinos and other wildlife safe and to enable us to continue our community outreach work. It will allow us to keep our personnel employed and provided for: our rangers, rhino and chimpanzee caretakers, tourist guides and community outreach officers. It will help us keep core functions of the organisation going. Your contribution is the most valuable thing you can do to protect the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa going during this crisis.

Long-Term Impact

It is the greatest pandemic of our lives. Our anticipated downturn to maintain our basic operations is USD 1.8m; we do not have the revenues at the moment to sustain ourselves. Therefore, your contributions today will help us keep welfare of our wildlife and ecosystem safe and protected. This includes providing the highest level of care in keeping endangered species protected and safe. So support us now to ride the wave.
