Elephant Aware is a project of Kenya’s Wildland Conservation Trust, which seeks to protect elephants through anti-poaching patrols and human-elephant conflict avoidance, through the deployment of locally trained Masai rangers. Elephant Aware’s primary activity is the monitoring of elephants, in a particularly isolated and remote area of Mara. Elephant Aware is closely monitoring the elephant populations and have a great degree of familiarity with each individual elephant within this zone. Rangers are employed to patrol and interact with the surrounding communities to lessen the Human Elephant Conflict (HEC), which is currently the number one treat to elephants in Kenya.
