As we celebrate World Wildlife Day on 3rd March 2023, we would like to highlight the incredible work done by our rangers at the Kasigau Corridor REDD+ project and share what has inspired them to live a life dedicated to protecting wildlife.
KSWS is home to more than 950 wild species, including 75 globally threatened species and plays a vital role in the preservation of the region’s important and vulnerable wildlife, including the world’s largest populations of endemic primates.
In Maasai culture, it is a rite of passage for a Moran (Warrior) to kill a lion. This has changed when conservation came. Now you don’t have to kill a lion to be called a Moran, you can earn that title by protecting them.
