WildiZe is thrilled with the results of
our 10 years of support for projects in the Tsavo Ecosystem and National Parks in Kenya. Click here
to read an updated report on these efforts!
Danny Woodley summarizes WildiZe's support toward overall security of wildife and natural resources, improved infrastructure and maintenance, and community development in both service and conservation awareness and tourism development. Danny states, "I and Kenya Wildlife Service remain indebted to WildiZe for your assistance to the park over the last ten years. Please thank your supporters and employees on my behalf."
Thank you as well, Danny, for all that you have accomplished! It has been an excellent team effort.
In May, Eli and WildiZe were proud to be invited as a sponsor for the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (AFEW) Annual Environmental Awards Ceremony on June 3rd at the Giraffe Center in Nairobi.
This year's "Our Biodiversity, Our Heritage" awards were given to outstanding students from throughout Kenya, addressing the IUCN's "Year of the Forest" for efforts in sustainable management of natural resources.
This is a critical junction for Africa, focused on raising awareness of everyday practices about reforestation and the watersheds that feed more than 12 major rivers and 3 countries in East Africa.
WildiZe had great presence at the Aspen Eco-Fest
on June 4th and 5th! We brought our African Market
to the streets of Aspen and provided a venue to discuss our projects and efforts in Africa.
Eric and his team of volunteers spoke to over 500 people throughout the weekend, expanding our outreach to the local community, and where the sales bolster our on-going on-the-ground successes.
Thanks to volunteers Kim Raymond, Andy Hanson and Leo Atkinson, and everyone who stopped by to say hello to our lovely Lioness. If you'd like more information about our 'little girl' please drop us a line or give us a call!

Eli had an eventful site-visit in Kenya in May. It was a non-stop whirlwind of meetings from northern to southern Kenya. In Laikipia we met up with Dr. Laurence Frank of the Laikipia Predator Project; Dr. Max Graham of Space For Giants, and Dr. Siva Sundaresan, Denver Zoo Conservation Biologist.
From there we headed up to Loiyangalani for the United Voice of Loiyangalani meeting, then down to the Maasai Mara to meet with our newest Grantee, Sara Blackburn of the Living With Lions Project; and Calvin Cottar of the Cottar's Wildlife Trust and the Maasai Elders.
From there we headed back to Nairobi where we sponsored the meeting with the Director and senior scientists of the Kenya Wildlife Service formalizing the relationship between WildiZe and KWS while also introducing Bill Given and Condition Taste Aversion. The meeting was a great success and positive way forward for further collaborations.
From there we headed down to Tsavo to meet up with Nana Woodley and site-check the Tsavo Lion Rehabilation Center with Bill Given and his assistant Rick McKenna toward getting the site ready for CTA.
Across Africa, lions are being killed in retaliation for livestock depredation at a rate that ensures their extinction outside of large protected areas within our lifetime.We'd like to introduce you to our newest Grantee, Living With Lions.
LWL is working in the rangelands of Kenya, and in particular in the Masai Mara ecosystem, to promote the co-existence of the Maasai and lions by reducing the cost of predators on pastoralists.
Living With Lions combines long term monitoring and scientific research on predator populations with effective community education and community partnerships both inside and outside of protected areas.
