Lewa Wildlife Conservancy UK

We work to support wildlife conservation, education, health care and community development in northern Kenya through providing security, training, opportunities and support

Founded 1997

  • Mission statement

    Lewa UK works as a catalyst for conservation and the protection of wildlife and its habitat through the management of species, the initiation and support of community conservation and development programmes, and the education of neighbouring areas in the value of wildlife.
    Through strategic anti-poaching measures, Lewa serves as a refuge for endangered species particularly rhinos, elephants and Grevy's zebra. At the same time, it creates direct benefits for local communities through the provision of education, health care, micro-credit and employment opportunities.
    Lewa has become the leading role model for sustainable wildlife conservation throughout East Africa.

  • Aims

    Lewa Wildlife Conservancy UK aims to:

    • Provision of anti-poaching security so that wildlife within the Conservancy and the people in surrounding communities may live without threat.
    • Provision of health care to the 60,000 people on Lewa's perimeters, expanding into the communities of the Northern Rangelands Trust as appropriate.
    • Ongoing development of the Lewa Education Programme including teacher training and support and infrastructural maintenance and growth.
    • Expansion of the Women's Micro Credit Scheme to capitalise on track record of success and to respond to ever increasing local need and demand.
