Sera is a 330,000 hectare conservancy that is part of a network of conservation areas in Northern Kenya working together to facilitate community-led conservation initiatives. The Sera Conservancy is home to many threatened species including the Grevy’s Zebra, Cheetah, Elephant, Beisa Oryx and African Wild Dog. Zoos SA support aids a micro-loan system which enables the local women to start their own small business. Local community members are also employed as scouts to patrol the Sera conservation area preventing poaching and increasing the security for pastoralists by policing livestock theft. In 2008 Reticulated Giraffe were successfully re-established in the Sera Conservancy and there are plans to re-introduce the critically endangered Black Rhino in the near future.
Our partners include the Northern Rangelands Trust, Sera Conservancy Trust and The Thin Green Line Foundation.
