LWIRO Primates-Maternity Clinic Rehabilitation
Faune Saine Communite Saine! (Healthy Wildlife Healthy Community)

This project exemplified the model of creating community understanding and support in order to save wildlife. While the needs of the community are many the Banovich Wildscapes Foundation has chosen to address the needs of the mothers and infants of the Lwiro community with the rehabilitation of the Lwiro Maternity Clinic. It is critical to the success of the program for wildlife and humans alike that money continues to run through the CRPL so it continues to be seen as a positive force in the community and the people and government continue to be engaged in its success. WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE and with continued support we can gain momentum in aiding the community understanding that in conserving WILDLIFE everyone wins.

KENYA WILDLIFE TRUST: MARA CHEETAH PROJECT

Mara Cheetah Project
Kenya, Supported by Wildscapes since 2013

Mara Cheetah Project (MCP), founded by the Kenya Wildlife Trust and led by Dr Femke Broekhuis of Oxford University’s Wildlife Research Unit (WildCRU), will determine the current status of cheetahs in the Greater Mara ecosystem and to identify the major threats that could be causing declines in the current cheetah population. The data will initially be collected during a two-year period using an array of data collection techniques including behavioral observation, faecal analysis, historic data and interviews with herders.

In 2016 through the first time use of GPS collars we are supporting the gathering of important scientific information and data to understand the influencing trends on the east african cheetah population.
