Project

Ol Pejeta

The Ol Pejeta Conservancy is a 90,000-acre not-for-profit wildlife conservancy in Central Kenya’s Laikipia County. It is the largest black rhino sanctuary in east Africa and home to over 110 critically endangered black rhino and the three remaining northern white rhino on earth. Ol Pejeta employs highly trained rhino protection teams, partners with international veterinary experts, and continuously gathers data on each animal under their care.

Ol Pejeta also seeks to support the people living around its borders, to ensure wildlife conservation translates to better education, healthcare and infrastructure for the next generation of wildlife guardians.

Grant #1 – June 2017

Empowers Africa made a grant to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, home to the last three northern white rhinos in the world. The rhinos are under constant threat from poachers and this grant will go toward the support of the Conservancy’s rhino anti-poaching efforts.
