In a time where we are facing an ever-growing concern over climate change, there is an urgent need to protect the decreasing land available for wildlife habitation. Now more than ever, conservation efforts need to focus on educating and helping local communities with their livestock numbers, their grazing programs and how best they can look after their environment to protect the wildlife and landscapes for future generations.
The Borana Conservancy is a non-profit conservation organisation dedicated to the sustainable conservation of critical habitat and wildlife. Below are some of the projects in which the conservancy has invested. By donating directly to these projects you can be assured that your money will go straight to the source and we encourage you to visit the projects over the course of your stay to see the difference your financial investment has made.
