Programme Overview

In early 2018, we brought together our two flagship predator conservation projects (focusing on lion and cheetah), into one long-term conservation commitment – our Mara Predator Conservation Programme.

Our vision is a world–class conservation programme, providing evidence–based, practical management recommendations, solutions and ideas.

The Mara Predator Conservation Programme has three overarching goals:

To help community members and landowners understand and appreciate the role of predators in the ecosystem

To ensure that key stakeholders in the Greater Mara Ecosystem consistently utilise sound scientific information to inform conservation strategies

To support stable, healthy predator populations in the Greater Mara Ecosystem by providing scientific evidence for conservation action

We believe these goals can be achieved through combining science, conservation and community engagement. Since 2013, our findings have had important implications for lion and cheetah conservation both nationally and in the rest of Africa.
