Tsavo Trust is a field based, Kenyan registered not-for-profit conservation organisation governed by a Kenyan Board of Directors. Tsavo Trust was established to play a meaningful role in protecting the wildlife and biodiversity of the Tsavo Conservation Area (TCA) by complementing Kenya Wildlife Service’s (KWS) activities and to provide significant support to KWS and specific communities in various conservation streams.
Tsavo Trust recognises the importance of a holistic approach to biodiversity conservation.
Professional wildlife conservation activities, grass-roots community engagement, valued partnerships and committed supporters combined to create a virtuous circle for the protection of Tsavo’s wilderness.
Tsavo Trust believes in conserving the vast wilderness of the Tsavo Conservation Area, that encompasses Kenya’s major Protected Area, is home to Kenya’s largest elephant population, several iconic Tuskers, numerous high value species and one of the few truly wild places with significant wildlife left in Africa.
This national heritage is under threat and faces multiple challenges including wildlife crime, climate change and habitat loss.
Tsavo Trust works on a unique strategy, in partnership with Kenya Wildlife Service and other partners on direct wildlife conservation projects as well as engaging specific local communities in the stewardship of community conservancies, so as to encourage participation in conservation activities that bring many varying benefits to those marginalised people that border the formal Protected Areas.
