Project Description

Mount Kenya Horse Patrol Team and SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM

The Mount Kenya Horse Patrol Team was set up to enhance the capacity of law enforcement personnel to decrease the level of poaching and other illegal activities in the northwestern section of Mount Kenya and beyond. Supported by IEF since 2014, this project both protects elephants and addresses human-elephant conflict (HEC). High densities of elephants coupled with high rural human density along protected areas have created hot-spots of HEC. Members of the Horse Patrol Team come from the community, not only learning conservation themselves but spreading the message at home. Their security and surveillance patrols enhance their ability to serve as conservation ambassadors. This year, the goal is to continue the great work done by this dedicated team and expand it to a larger area by building semi-permanent satellite bases to be utilized during longer patrols.
