Coming Together for Mara Naboisho

By Asilia Africa News | 24 April 2020

Asilia is thrilled to announce that we’re partnering with the Mara Naboisho Conservancy and their COVID-19 crowdfunding campaign to support the people and wildlife that depend on their conservation efforts.

The success of the Mara Naboisho Conservancy’sexemplary conservation model is under threat. Without the much-needed funding from responsible tourism, the conservancy cannot sustain their efforts. This is why a COVID-19 Emergency Appeal has been started. It aims to help raise funds to support the people and wildlife that depend on the Mara Naboisho Conservancy through the coronavirus crisis. As an organisation with a deep presence in the conservancy, we are committed to helping in any way we can.

Naboisho means “Coming Together” in the local Maasai language and the conservancy was created on the promise that wildlife and humans can not only co-exist, but thrive. 10 years later, the once overgrazed and fragmented land is now a safe haven for elephant, cheetah, leopard, and has one of the highest densities of lion in Africa. Further to that over 600Maasai families receive a monthly financial lifeline from the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, bringing tangible, shared benefits to more than 5000 people.
