Siana and Oloisukut Conservancies, Kenya

SIANA CONSERVANCY

Jamma International is partnering with WWF to support the development of the Siana and Oloisukut Conservancies, on the north-eastern boundary of the Maasai Mara Reserve, ensuring both people and wildlife have the opportunities to benefit from this area’s development.

Our
Approach

The Siana and Oloisukut Conservancies are an important wildlife corridor which links the plains of the Mara game reserve with the Loita Hills, where animals migrate in the dry season. The conservancy is home to thousands of people. 


Together with WWF-Kenya, Jamma is working to ensure that the Siana and Oloisukut Conservancies not only secure a vital wildlife corridor for the migration of elephants and wildebeest, but also act as a catalyst for local sustainable development, and positively influences the lives of Siana and Oloisukut residents. Our support of the project began in 2015 and we are continuing to support WWF in creating sustainable models that can scale.

Supporting spaces where wildlife and people can coexist.

Land fragmentation is a major conservation challenge. This is characterised by increased human-wildlife conflict incidents that are attributed to competition for natural resources. WWF-Kenya, supported by Jamma, is working closely with local communities to realise the benefits of conserving this critical resource through sustainable rangeland management.

Our main focus within the Siana and Oloisukut Conservancies is business and enterprise development, supporting local individuals within the community to help expand opportunities that communities can get involved in and use to support themselves sustainably.

By developing the conservancies’ infrastructure and governance, establishing wildlife monitoring and law enforcement, and supporting community land rights and alternative sources of income, this project can ensure the Siana and Oloisukut  Conservancies are benefiting communities and wildlife alike.

Jamma has been working together with Ten for Zen’s founders to develop a programme plan of new resources to provide free, easy-to-access information to help people across the UK live a more mindful life. Our mission is to develop a Life Skills programme and to ensure that these skills can be part of anyone’s daily self-care, building resilience and improving mental health and wellbeing.

In partnership with Ten for Zen we have built a programme plan to deliver an extensive array of tools to enable anyone, anywhere to experience the positive benefits of understanding how your mind works.
