Human- Animal Coexistence
ANAW advocates for the preservation of critical wildlife migration corridors between protected areas passing through community-owned land. In 2015, ANAW entered into a memorandum of understanding with Kasigau Ranch Ltd to support the ranch develop a range management plan for integrating landscape conservation and livestock production to protect critical elephant lion and large herbivore migration corridor through the 52,000-acre ranch located between Tsavo West and East National Parks. Since then, ANAW has contributed towards recruitment and remuneration for 15 local guardians to provide security and community liaison between the ranch and the local land owners. As a result, illegal bush meat hunting has reduced, fewer elephants are being poached for ivory and community goodwill has increased through co-operating-responsibility activities such as the dik-dik sports festival.
