Further the healthy coexistence of people and wildlife, and conserve life-giving ecosystems.
The plight of elephants is dire. ACC’s programs reduce poaching, expand and protect migratory routes, and empower communities to protect this keystone species.
ACC combines scientific and local knowledge to improve the management of natural resources while improving livelihoods, recognizing the health of the whole ecosystem – humans, wildlife and land.
ACC develops sustainable community enterprises related to eco-tourism, nature-based products, crafts, rangeland and wildlife management and environmental education.
ACC’s programs celebrate and promote the Maasai’s pastoral traditions that reduce land degradation and permanent settlements and provide a landscape in which both people and wildlife can thrive.
By combining the latest science with Maasai knowledge and participation, we are increasing lion numbers across Kenya’s South Rift and decreasing human/lion conflicts.
ACC and its collaborators are mapping the distribution of animals, plants and human livelihoods; modeling their vulnerability to climate and land use change; and recommending mitigating & adaptive strategies.
