Rukinga Wildlife Conservation
Rukinga Wildlife Sanctuary is an 80-000-acre wildlife haven in Tsavo that is home to more than 50 species of large mammal, many of which are endangered, including elephants, grevy's zebra, cheetahs, lions and African wild dogs. There are also more than 300 species of birds living here.
However, the sanctuary faces continuous challenges from ivory poachers, illegal deforestation, and conflict between farmers and wildlife, resulting in the need for constant protection and restoration if rare wildlife is to continue to flourish here.
We're supporting the work of Wildlife Works and the Kenya Wildlife Service by improving water holes, maintaining roads for anti-poaching patrols, helping farmers protect their crops using fences and establishing environmental education workshops for the local community.
