By investing in and supporting the Northern Rangelands Trust and its members, our partners are helping to secure conservation and sustainable development in northern Kenya. Placing their trust in NRT and the communities of northern Kenya, they have confidence that they will make a difference to the future of wildlife and people’s livelihoods. We are fortunate to have many partners that bring continuity and credibility to the role of the Trust. NRT currently has many opportunities for investment, which range from supporting a community conservancy’s annual operating budget to business ventures in tourism.
