Nashulai Maasai Conservancy

Faits marquants

Equator Prize Winner: 2020
Year of establishment: 2016
Location: Kenya
Ecosystem: Wetlands and rivers, grasslands and drylands

Parmi les premières conservations détenues et gérées par des autochtones en Afrique de l'Est, la Nashulai Maasai Conservancy est à l'avant-garde d'un changement de paradigme vers un modèle de conservation à usage mixte.

This 2,400 hectare protected area forms an important ecological corridor in the Maasai Mara and has attracted elephants, zebras, giraffes, lions and numerous other species. Combining indigenous ecological knowledge with cutting-edge science, local Maasai communities are also engaged in economic development and cultural programming, so humans, livestock, and wildlife all prosper in harmony.

An elephant nursery and a bird sanctuary support the restoration of wildlife diversity and density. Traditional agricultural practices such as rotational grazing and use of a drought-resistant cattle species have helped adapt to climate change. Profits from ecotourism have been used to build two schools, increased access to clean water, and supported entrepreneurship and leadership training for women, who hold half of the leadership positions.

A sense of pride in preserving indigenous culture is evidence of the success of the model, which has already been replicated.
