Wildlife and the viability of their habitats in the Greater Lamu Eco-region are under severe threat due to increased human-wildlife conflicts triggered by illegal hunting, habitat destruction and the disruption of migratory movement patterns.

Through active conservation strategies the LCT is working towards stabilising and sustaining the terrestrial ecosystem, which incorporates critical habitat and wildlife corridors and is a biodiversity hotspot for globally threatened species.

Private lands conservation is an innovative tactic that leverages the increasing interest of the private sector to take part in community-based conservation. Conserved sustainably the land offers opportunities that will provide a solid income alternative to the communities, local governments and county councils within these sensitive areas, generating financial security and project sustainability.
