THE IMPORTANCE OF WILDLIFE CONSERVANCIES IN EXPANDING THE AREA OF PROTECTED HABITAT FOR WILDLIFE IN KENYA

It would probably be correct to say that conservancies originated around Kruger National Park in Sth Africa.

 

They have since spread to other parts of Sth Africa and other African nations.

 

They are a good approach to conditions in a variety of places.

 

when Anna Merz was looking at with members of the Craig family into reintroducing rhinos into Lewa Downs in the late 1980.'s , she actively studied how things were done in Sth Africa . The community support at Lewa has been built up to something which is beyond compare.

Thank you for the conservancy history update.

You've emphasized the necessity of strong community support for a conservancy to flourish.

What else is essential for a conservancy to thrive, in addition to strong, authentic community involvement?

The area has to be well looked after ,good security , good management, well promoted , priced. An area where people will want to go.

 

the people have top realize the opportunity they have and take it for their benefit. The people realize this is our jobs, income , chance to get facilities.

 

They have to be able to negotiate , in 2 of the communities covered by the Nthn Rangelands Trusts the lodge operator has a medium term lease then hands over full ownership of the lodge to the community.

Thank you for explaining that.

Your Lewa experience has provided you with a strong, positive example of a well-run conservancy.

Had I never joined Safaritalk, such possibilities as conservancies would remain unknown to me.
