Community lands, Northeastern Kenya
Only 5% of the endangered reticulated giraffe’s range is found inside government National Parks. Therefore, the vast majority of these giraffe share their home landscape across the northern Kenyan savanna with people and livestock. SGN funds elite Mobile Anti-Poaching Teams who are operating in an area of these giraffe’s range that is facing severe political insecurity and poaching pressure. These small mobile teams’ rangers are specially trained and fully mobile in uniquely equipped 4x4s. The teams are constantly on the move, working with communities and surprising insurgents and poachers through carefully planned and effective tactical missions, increasing peace and security for the people, and protecting reticulated giraffe.
