Landscape Restoration and Connectivity

Landscape Restoration and Connectivity

Habitat loss and fragmentation pose one of the greatest threats to the future of Africa’s wildlife, ecosystems, and rural communities. Through strategic partnerships, we lead collective efforts to restore and connect a flourishing mosaic of lands that benefits people, parks, and wildlife while building local climate change resilience.

HOW WE RESTORE AND CONNECT LANDSCAPES

Wildlife-livestock-corridor

Support Local Corridors

We engage communities in the conservation of critical corridors for wildlife and livestock that link protected areas with communal and private lands.

Revitalize Degraded Pastures

The overgrazing of local pastures can lead to soil erosion and inadequate food for wildlife and livestock. Together with local communities, we monitor and manage the long-term health of vital habitats that benefit people and wildlife.

Conserve Wildlands Through Beekeeping

Under Tanzania's beekeeping policy, trees holding beehives cannot be cut. By hanging beehives in strategic locations in the landscape, we protect essential wildlife habitats. Increased honeybee presence also enhances the health of grasslands and corridors.

Layer Programming to Maximize Impact

We overlap our rangeland management programming with the observed range of lions, leopards, and cheetahs to ensure the health and connectivity of vital big cat habitat. We also enhance the health of these pastures with an increased beehive presence through our Women's Beekeeping Initiative.

Leverage Partnerships to Enhance Connectivity

We work with multiple partners—including government authorities—across large landscapes like the Ngorongoro Conservation Area to identify shared goals and implement joint programming with local community members.
