Lewa Wildlife Conservancy
An ex-cattle ranch, the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy works as a catalyst for the conservation of wildlife and its habitat. It does this through the protection and management of species including Grévy’s zebra and black rhino, the initiation and support of community conservation and development programmes, and the education of neighbouring areas in the value of wildlife.
African Wildlife Foundation (AWF): Grevy's Zebra Conservation
AWF’s Grevy’s Zebra Research Project was established to increase understanding and awareness of this endangered species and to curb the current decline of Grevy's zebra populations throughout Africa.
IUCN/SSC Equid Specialist Group
This collaboration aims to understanding the threats facing wild equids and ensure the long term survival of wild equid species.
Marwell Preservation Trust
aims to help secure the future of the Grevy's zebra by supporting the national strategy for Grevy’s zebra conservation, providing training to local biologists, technical support to partner organisations and by working with communities to help them achieve their conservation goals.
The Grevy’s Zebra Trust (GZT) is a Kenyan conservation trust that was established to conserve Grevy’s zebra across its range in collaboration with local communities. In the short-term, GZT’s conservation activities intend to halt the rapid decline of the species in the more remote areas of its range. In the long-term the success of its conservation programmes is based on fostering positive attitudes towards Grevy’s zebra and other wildlife, building community capacity to manage rangeland sustainably for livestock and wildlife, developing local Grevy’s zebra conservation strategies led by communities, and working with local, national and international partners to establish meaningful incentives to conserve the species.
Northern Rangelands Trust (NRT)
is an umbrella organisation for communities who seek to conserve biodiversity and improve environmental management as a means of improving their livelihoods. NRT is currently working with 15 community conservancies covering a total area of more than 5,000km2. The role of NRT is to develop the capacity of community organisations in conservation, natural resource management and natural resource-based enterprises. The future of wildlife in northern Kenya will rely upon support from local communities in order to retain an ecosystem approach to conservation, allowing wildlife to migrate through their natural range. This is particularly important for species such as Grevy’s zebra. Wildlife-based tourism is one of the key revenue generating activities for conservancies, and Grevy’s zebra are thus an important resource or community development.
