Rhino Ark, Greater Mara

The Mau Eburu forest area covers 87 km2 of prime indigenous forest and is the catchment for the Mara River.  It is under threat from human encroachment.  Protection of the Mara River headwaters is essential for ensuring the continued existence of the Greater Mara area.  Implementing partner: Kenya Wildlife Trust.

Our Philosophy

Asilia operates in some of the most spectacular wild places in Africa.  Yet they are fragile, under immense pressure, where the needs of both people and wildlife are often juxtaposed.

Empowering both people and places is essential if the habitats, upon which we all depend, are to survive.

We’ve selected a number of reputable and effective local partners as the drivers of these interventions.   These partners tackle the issues of education, community upliftment and wildlife conservation in meaningful ways, getting to the source of the problems rather than treating the symptoms.
