Wildlife Security & Ecosystem Monitoring

To address the issues affecting our terrestrial wildlife the Lamu Conservation Trust is actively working on the ground, providing security and promoting the positive effects of biodiversity conservation.

With the support of the Kenya Wildlife Service and the Kenya Forestry Service the L.C.T has been running daily patrols within the Amu zone and surrounding areas with armed Kenya Police Reserve officials.

Through these patrols, security has been provided for habitat, wildlife and people, whilst data on the status of species, natural resources and forest quality is being recorded to enable informed management decisions and long term sustainability of environmental monitoring systems.
