beadThe Maasai

The Maasai are semi-nomadic pastoralists and their cattle are at the centre of their culture and social life. The great advantage of MNC to the Maasai is that they can continue grazing their cattle under a management plan which ensures the simultaneous protection of the natural wildlife habitat. However, this inevitably leads to human-wildlife conflict as predators frequently prey on livestock when in their enclosures, or ‘bomas’, at night. Traditional retaliation practices frequently follow, often leading to lion killings.

 

The "Boma Fortification Project"


The Boma Fortification Project has been launched to address this problem, offering chain-link wire fencing to improve defences against livestock predation. There is a long list of community members waiting to buy 18m long rolls of chain link wire which MNC is offering on a ‘buy-one, get-one-free’ basis. Already there are 130 fortified bomas on MNC under this scheme.

There is a long list of community members waiting to buy 18m long rolls of chain link wire which MNC is offering on a buy-one, get-one-free basis. Already there are 130 fortified bomas on MNC, which you are welcome to visit, but demand still far exceeds funding for the ‘get-one-free’ roll.
With other areas of community development covered by the Bright Green Project, the C&P Community Trust is asking for your support for this critical project.
For KES 4,000 you can donate the ‘free’ roll of chain link so that more pastoralists can protect their livestock. As a result, your donation will also contribute to the conservation of lions and other wild predators in the conservancy.
