Collaborative Conservation Support

Amara Conservation offers support and partners with other organizations to add synergy to the broad conservation goals in Kenya. There are thousands of activities that need to be carried out to accomplish the bigger conservation goals, and no one organization has the ability to do all of these things.

 

Amara firmly believes in the value of partnering with likeminded entities for the purpose of achieving the worthy cause. We work closely with the Kenya Wildlife Service, Wildlife Works, local elder and other grassroots groups, and larger conservation entities. Sharing expertise is so rewarding.

Amara has also provided financial and material support to other organizations, including donation of vehicles, fuel, radio handsets, supporting research among others. We have also supported and participated in joint events and activities organized by others, such as marches for conservation, assisting others with their fundraising events, and helping “get the word out” about other organizations doing good work

 

The Tsavo West National Park is a section of one of the largest wildlife conservancies on the planet, as well as one of Kenya’s largest wildlife national parks. It is well-known for its resident population of Red Elephants as well as the tale of the Tsavo Man-eaters. Unfortunately, most of the communities bordering these parks have never had a chance to visit them due to the cost. For these reasons Amara organizes game drives with Purdue University students each year into Tsavo West National Park. We also encourage children to form Wildlife Clubs and embrace their wildlife and environment. This year Mrabenyi Secondary School in Taita Taveta County had the opportunity to tour the vast Park and interact with the University students from USA.

 

tHistorically, the Tsavo Area is renowned for the Man-eaters of Tsavo, two mane-less lions who developed a taste to prey on humans back in the early 1900’s (various reasons are cited for this, one recently being that they suffered from tooth decay and pain that made hunting difficult for them!). Although they were later shot, they killed many people that were constructing the railway line connecting Mombasa and Nairobi. Additionally, it was the main battlefield between the Germans and the Britons in Africa in the course of World War I. Currently the area is very peaceful and is now famous for its resident Red-colored Elephants, that enjoy dust-bathing in the red colored soil. The serene environment of Tsavo comes mainly with thorny bushland, open grasslands and among the most beautiful scenic areas are; the Yatta plateau, the World’s longest lava flow stretching 290km; Mzima springs; Shetani Lava Flow; Chaimu Hill; and Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary.

We Need Your Help!

We can play a major role in protecting the most important wildlife habitat in East Africa, if not all the continent. It MUST be protected in our children’s lifetime or it could be lost forever. Please join us.
