Scaling Up Community Conservation in The Greater Mara Ecosystem by Daniel Sopia, MMWCA

October 29, 2019

Maasai Mara Wildlife Conservancies association (MMWCA) was formed as a membership organization for current and future wildlife conservancies in the Greater Maasai Mara. We have a mandate from landowners and tourism parties to play an overarching coordination role for Greater Mara Ecosystem stakeholders. By conserving the greater Maasai Mara ecosystem through this network of community protected areas, we ensure the prosperity of biodiversity and wildlife, the regional Maasai population, recreation, tourism, and the nation of Kenya for generations to come. Through its conservancies' council, MMWCA is positioned to bring together key parties in the region, including the local communities and landowners, conservancy boards and managers, community institutions, conservation partners, scientific experts, as well as government institutions including the Kenya Wildlife Service and the Narok County Government.
