Kenya’s Masai Mara leads the way in wildlife conservation
Great News! The Masai Mara Wildlife Conservancy Association (MMWCA) has been awarded a sizable grant from USAID to further its goals. As part of a collective effort with The Nature Conservancy, MMWCA is thrilled at the news.
“This will build and strengthen MMWCA capacity and strengthen conservancies’ governance across the Mara landscape,” said Daniel Sopia, Chairman, MMWCA. “We are grateful to Asilia Africa who raised the funds to kickstart the MMWCA, which has enabled the CEO to put her time to develop the USAID proposal.”
“We’re immensely proud to be associated with this initiative,” says Bas Hochstenbach, Co-founder and Commercial Director for Asilia Africa. “This kind of harmonious coexistence between humans and wildlife is the future model for conservation in Africa. These conservancies position the Mara at the cutting edge of modern conservation”.
Thank you to all who helped in raising the seed funding for the MMWCA.
Asilia Africa has three camps in two of the Mara conservancies:
- Naboisho (Naboisho Conservancy)
- Encounter Mara(Naboisho Conservancy)
- Mara Bush Houses (Mara North Conservancy)
