Lewa conservancy receives worldwide award, recognition

19 November 2014, 20:55 Joseph Njunge'h

Nairobi - A wildlife conservancy in Isiolo County, Northern Kenya has been recognized as one of the best managed and protected areas in the world.

The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy was documented by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in its first Green List of Protected Areas released last week.

The list was announced in Sydney, Australia.

The Conservancy was recognized for its excellence in wildlife conservation and its numerous community development programmes in education, health, women and youth empowerment that have transformed thousands of lives in Northern Kenya and other regions.

Evaluation was against a set of criteria including the quality and management of the natural resources, tangible benefits to communities and sustainable conservation outcomes.

While welcoming the announcement, Lewa Conservancy CEO, Mike Watson said the recognition was on work done for decades to protect wildlife.

“This listing is a fantastic way to end the year on Lewa; it reinforces belief in our conservation and development practices perfected over decades. It gives us confidence to know we are doing a great job worthy of international recognition,” said Watson.  

The benefits of featuring in the Green List include international recognition and increased potential for financial support.

Other benefits are motivation of protected area managers to meet and maintain high standards of management, recognition by the international tourism industry among others.
