Project Summary:
This project will encourage human-wildlife coexistence and build the financial resilience of communities in two marginalised communities on the border of the Tsavo reserve in Kenya. The two communities concerned on the border of Tsavo experience human-wildlife conflict and have limited income-generating opportunities, exacerbating poverty and driving engagement in wildlife crime, threatening Tsavo’s wildlife. The project will tackle this through development of human-wildlife conflict mitigation, livelihood enhancement and establishment of saving schemes The capacity of community scouts and government community wildlife services will be strengthened to deter engagement in wildlife crime. These combined interventions will help alleviate pressure on Tsavo’s wildlife.
