Over 500K Kms. Covered In Patrols
We have 5 ranger teams consisting 42 brave men who have dedicated their lives to serve and protect the Mount Kenya ecosystem. They achieve this through conducting routine, joint and camping patrols on the lookout for illegal activities, mitigating any potential threats on Flora & Fauna
Mount Kenya Trust has forged partnerships with key players in the landscape in order to achieve quick response, to maximize patrol impacts and in gathering intelligence in the region. Some of these partners include; Kenya Wildlife Service, Kenya Forest Association, Community Forest Associations, The Judiciary and locals. Some of our ranger teams have been formed to ensure collaboration with Kenya Wildlife Service.
Joint Wildlife Patrol Team

Horse Patrol Team
The Horseback Patrol Team covers vast distances on hardy Ethiopian ponies to monitor the forests and moorlands, with high altitude satellite camps extending their reach.
Imenti Patrol Team
Imenti Patrol Team tackles threats to the Imenti Forest Reserve, a once-neglected area that has been heavily logged and grazed, which we are now replanting with indigenous trees.
