Working with Samburu Warriors and Other Community Members to Conserve Kenya's Lions

Kenya's lions could be extinct in the next two decades, largely due to habitat loss and conflict with humans over livestock depredation. The Ewaso Lions project conserves northern Kenya’s remaining lions by promoting coexistence between people and wildlife. Since 2007, this coexistence has been achieved through community-based conservation programs, which engage Samburu warriors, women, elders, and youth in activities that benefit human livelihoods while also conserving wildlife and protecting habitat.

Participatory Village Development Planning: Towards Self Reliant Communities

Introduction               Indonesia’s village development planning has rarely been based on genuine community participation.  Village Development Plans are often developed by only one or two village leaders, and mainly used by the local (district) government to meet a requirement to obtain national government budget assistance. Participatory planning to improve villagers’ capacity to develop and manage village resources is not commonplace.

The importance of trees for Molo can hardly be underestimated. Trees serve as water catchment protection, have medicinal value, provide fuel woods, offer fruits and can be used as wind breakers, biological fencing or fodders for animals. The ongoing deforestation leads to land degradation, drying out of spring water and severe soil erosion. But as the rural poor communities depend on collecting firewood for sale or on cutting down trees for burning charcoal, there has been a notable increase of deforestation in Molo Region.

environmental protection with innovative solutions

I. SOLUTION 1: PRODUCTION FROM PAPER PRODUCTS As we know, the products produced will be kept largely in the plastic bag. For people, the choice of buying a product depends largely on the design or packaging of beauty products as well as prices or not they choose to purchase. Businesses see it as an advantage to increase business for many more people. However, they did not notice that the product is packaged in plastic bags or plastic when people use me, they'll leave. Therefore, the amount of plastic bags or plastic waste into the environment increased significantly.

Kawil Tours


We never thought that a long-forgotten and isolated island can be a travel destination. When we started Kawil Tours, the challenges were overwhelming. But the 100-year isolation proved that we had 100 years-worth of inspiration to reconnect this former leper colony to the world through tourism.
