WILDLIFE CONSERVATION IN TSAVO, KENYA
TSAVO TRUST is a Kenyan non-profit organisation working to conserve wildlife in southern Kenya's Greater Tsavo Ecosystem.
We do this through targeted wildlife conservation projects such as our Big Tusker Project which provides extra protection and monitoring for the world's greatest tuskers, as well as through the development of wild animal welfare facilities and conservancies.

KEY TSAVO TRUST PROGRAMMES AND PROJECTS
KAMUNGI CONSERVANCY PROGRAM
Here at the Tsavo Trust, we fully believe that one of the most fundamental aspects to wildlife conservation is to engage with the communities whom surround the protected areas. These communities hold the key to helping us secure wildlife and its environment; it is a ‘make or break’ situation and it is up to us through positive, constructive engagement to ensure our local communities ‘make’ wildlife work for them.

TSAVO TRUST works alongside the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), the national wildlife authority, to support KWS’s anti-poaching and conservation work within the Tsavo East, Tsavo West and Chyulu Hills National Parks. This program includes the work we are doing outside the National Parks to enhance community participation in wildlife conservation including the Kamungi Conservancy. Our lead wildlife conservation initiative is our 'Big Tusker Project'.
BIG TUSKER PROJECT
The world's greatest tuskers live in Tsavo, which hosts the world's last viable population of these massive 'hundred pounder' elephants bearing ivory weighing over 100 lbs per side. TSAVO TRUST works in partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service to provide extra protection for these giants-among-giants through anti-poaching support and aerial monitoring. Read more.
WILD ANIMAL WELFARE
Wild animal welfare is an aspect of conservation, which is often overlooked or misunderstood in Kenya, due partly to a lack of awareness and partly to a lack of resources. TSAVO TRUST is planning a programme specifically seeking to address the challenge of improving the standards and understanding of animal welfare in Kenya. Read more.
