KWT is the premier supporter of predator conservation in Kenya, with community and education programmes.
Despite its phenomenal wildlife experiences, Kenya faces many ‘typical’ problems of habitat loss, unplanned infrastructure, and human demography, and conflict between human and wild species’ interest. The Kenya Wildlife Trust is the country’s main supporter of research in pursuit of the critical knowledge needed to maintain predator popualations in the face of these threats. Acknowledging that effective conservation requires mutually beneficial co-existence with rural peoples, KWT also focuses on programmes of tertiary level training for land and wildlife managers, and on community health programmes to demonstrate the links between healthy ecosystems and human well-being.
