Our Approach

“Mara” in Maa, the language of the Maasai people, means “dot”, which is what the iconic trees throughout the region look like from the air.




Mara Elephant Project focuses on four aims to connect the dots for conservation.

"Mara Elephant Project is a conservation project, so our main focus is elephants and we’re broadening those horizons now to include elephant habitat, the environment and some of the other issue’s elephants are facing as we look to a long-term strategy for elephant protection."
