Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust

The mission of the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust is to support the preservation of biodiversity within the Maasai tribal lands of East Africa by promoting conservation, education and health services within the Maasai community.

The uniqueness of both equatorial Africa’s grassland ecosystems and the traditional culture of the Maasai people face daunting challenges to survive and co-exist in a sustainable manner. Recognizing that the fate of both rests with the Maasai themselves, MWCT collaborates with the local community on innovative programs designed to promote conservation in ways that bring direct economic benefit to people.
