Project: The Kasigau Corridor REDD Project Phase II: The Community Ranches
Project: Location: KASIGAU, KENYA
For years, the land between Tsavo East and Tsavo West National parks in Kenya served both as home to a slowly failing cattle ranch and as the main migration corridor for local wildlife moving between the two National Parks. When we first encountered Rukinga, the community and the wildlife were at odds. Rukinga was a bruised, balding land, barren of wildlife. Cattle had grazed the fields into dust, poachers slipped on and off the ranch with ease, and trees were being clear cut along the area’s critical rainwater basin.
In 1998 the local community supported our plan to establish the Rukinga Wildlife Sanctuary that covers 80,000 acres of forest. We established a community works project so local residents had an alternative income stream in place of poaching and clear cutting. We brought on locally hired rangers and trained them to be wilderness guardians. We convinced the owners of the cattle to remove the cattle from the land to reduce conflict over resources.
The protection area has now expanded to over 500,000 acres, which will offset 1 million tons of CO2 emissions per year for the next 30 years. With the dryland Acacia-Commiphora forest under our protection and its original biodiversity restored, the Kasigau Corridor REDD project was awarded the Gold level status by the Community and Biodiversity Standard for exceptional biodiversity and climate benefits. The project area is home to a fantastic diversity of over 50 species of large mammals, more than 20 species of bats and over 300 species of birds and important populations of IUCN Red List species such as; Grevy’s Zebra, Cheetah, Lion, African Wild Dog as well as over 2,000 African elephants. Now that scores highly for the future of planet earth.
