Lewa Wildlife Conservancy USA

Protects East-African wildlife--including endangered rhino and Grevy's zebra--through habitat protection, anti-poaching programs and by integrating wildlife conservation into economic needs of local communities.

Lewa Wildlife Conservancy USA supports wildlife conservation in the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya. This area includes the largest population of black rhino in East Africa and a quarter of the world’s remaining Grevy’s zebra. Located in the northern foothills of Mt. Kenya in a traditional elephant migratory corridor, Lewa works as catalyst for the conservation of wildlife and its habitat by integrating wildlife conservation into economic needs of local people.

Lewa also protects large numbers of buffalo, cheetah, eland, elephant, giraffe, gazelle, impala, and Burchell’s Zebra and initiated and supports conservation and development programs in surrounding communities.

Lewa believes that wildlife welfare in this region is the most sustainable form of land use for the long-term benefit of the people of Kenya. It provides a link between wildlife and people, uniting communities with government and private wildlife refuge areas and stimulating the local economy. Since 1995, Lewa has helped establish 1,500,000 acres of conservation land managed by local communities and created employment for more than 1,000 Kenyans. This contribution to the economy has established conservation as a recognized and critical form of land use ensuring the long term future of wildlife in the region and in Kenya.
