Given the magnitude of the threats, reversing the trajectories of elephant and habitat loss in the Mara requires more vigilance and action across the landscape.
MEP aspires over the next two years to expand its operations to protect more of the Mara’s elephants, help farmers and communities throughout the region and act as a watchdog and first responder across more of the Mara ecosystem.

MEP seeks resources to support:
More rangers on the ground: three additional teams of rangers to effectively cover two new poaching hotspots.
Keeping an eye on more elephants: an expanded monitoring program for elephants and their movements. This activity informs future land zoning negotiations and provides real-time positioning of elephants.
Reducing more human-elephant conflict (HEC): we plan to increase the area of operations for our rangers by using HEC toolkits and mitigation methods. The HEC toolkit includes building elephant-deterrent chili fences, deploying UAVs (drones) to human-elephant conflict, promoting positive human-elephant relations and expanding MEP’s geofence database.
Community partnerships: MEP builds trust and fosters tolerance with local communities. These partnerships allow us to work at a grassroots level with education and engagement as the foundation for our relationship. When immediate action is required to save elephants these partnerships help us save elephants and influence long-term land use planning.
