While the Samburu people have traditionally had a good relationship with local wildlife—indeed, they have set aside their own private protected areas to help promote ecotourism—human population growth and loss of habitat have caused an increase in human-wildlife conflicts. Titus (the project leader) needs $10,000 for transportation costs to conduct his community outreach campaign. (In Kenya the savannas are wide and the price of gas is very high.)


Titus is working with conservation groups Rare, Earthwatch and local partner Namunyak Wildlife Conservation Trust to train local people in ways to protect their crops and water supplies from elephants. Community visits are absolutely vital.

Long-Term Impact

The campaign will help grow a culture of conservation in the region and foster the constituencies necessary for creating policy changes, legislative reform, and greater enforcement of protective laws
