My story

Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is a 62,000-acre wildlife conservancy and UNESCO World Heritage Site situated in northern Kenya's Meru County. The conservancy provides a secure habitat for some of Africa's most threatened species, whilst also crucially integrating locally led community development programmes into wildlife conservation. Since its inception in 1995, Lewa has developed into a leading model for community-centric conservation and acts as a catalyst for sustainable change within northern Kenya. 

Our dedicated security teams continually adapt to the rapidly evolving threat of poaching in order to protect the wildlife under our care. Lewa's world class rangers not only conserve and protect the conservancy's flora and fauna, but also play a vital role in enhancing security for people across the region. As Lewa's Head of Anti-Poaching, Edward plays a key role in ensuring the success of our security teams as frontline protectors of wildlife. After joining Lewa in 1997 as a field ranger, Edward's unfaltering dedication over the years led him to become head of the unit in 2012. Under his strong leadership, wildlife populations across the landscape have increased significantly, with the conservancy witnessing a promising resurgence in the rhino population and a decline in elephant poaching. 

Through supporting Edward as he takes on the London marathon, your generosity holds the power to advance his teams ongoing success, as they continue with their steadfast efforts to protect some of the world's most threatened species and the communities they live alongside. Thanks to our partners at Tusk, with your kind support, Edward and his team will continue to work tirelessly on the frontline of conservation, ensuring a lasting legacy for future generations to come. 

All donations received by Tusk, in support of Edward, will be donated to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.
