Dr. Dusti Becker and Dr. Tony Povilitis, Ann Nampayio Saruni, and Moran Kerika of the Maasai Morans Conservation Group will be joining us live to further discuss their community based conservation project. the Maasai Morans Conservation Group and Walking Safaris (MMCWS) is a community-based organization (CBO) created and composed of young adult Maasai from Oloirien Group Ranch in the Transmara District of Kenya. The group is dedicated to conservation of local wildlife and wildlife habitat in conjunction with improving lives of local Maasai. MMCWS is developing exciting walking safaris to support their organization so that they can move forward with habitat conservation. Life Net Nature, a conservation charity, is helping MMCWS to develop skills in wildlife monitoring and legal planning for conservation along the edge of the Siria Escarpment and for wildlife corridors to forests critical to the survival of many birds and mammals, but seriously threatened by current trends in land use.
