Safeguarding Mount Kenya Ecosystem

Mount Kenya, Kenya's highest peak and Africa's second tallest mountain rises 5,199 meters (17,057 feet) above sea level. The mountain hosts 81 unique plant species like towering lobelias and senecios, along with a distinct rock hyrax subspecies. Its diverse ecosystem shelters Kenya's third-largest lion and second-largest elephant populations, both "vulnerable" per the IUCN. Covering 2,100 square kilometers, the protected area includes the National Park and Reserve, crucial for safeguarding habitats. Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, Mount Kenya is central to Kenya's conservation endeavors.

Who We Are

A trusted co-steward in protecting, preserving, and enriching one of the most vulnerable UNESCO World Heritage sites in the world - Mt. Kenya. Mount Kenya's ecosystem is vital to both the Kenyan population and its economy.

Our holistic and partnership-based approach that puts people at the center of our programs in order to encourage collective responsibility in protecting  and conserving  forest, water, people and wildlife.


Holistic Community-Centered Approach.

  It is crucial that our projects are community driven in order to create a sense of collective responsibility towards conserving their ecosystem and for them to understand the value of responsible consumption through livelihood sustainable projects that provide best practices. 

We also ensure access to free primary healthcare services to our communities in order to protect their wellbeing.



Mount Kenya, a UNESCO World Heritage Site facing numerous ecological threats, requires urgent and collective action from all stakeholders. The Mount Kenya ecosystem is well known for its essential  biodiversity, geology and cultural importance that must be protected, appreciated and restored. Mount Kenya’s forests suffered considerably in the past decades, when large areas were cleared to provide timber and land for rapid population growth and urbanization and our wildlife equally suffers the consequences.  Learn more about the strategies we employ to ensure wildlife and habitat protection.
