We’ve done it again – Ecotourism Kenya has awarded Ol Pejeta the Private Conservancy of the Year award for the third time in four years. We are immensely proud of our achievements in 2016, only made possible by the hard work and dedication of each and every member of staff. Go team!
Our great track record for rhino conservation and protection is down to a number of factors – but of course our main asset when it comes to rhinos is our ranger teams – in which we, and our partners, invest a significant amount of resources. In order to stay ahead of the game, our rangers receive regular refresher training.
During the 6th – 20th October, 55 of our rhino rangers (nearly 40% of the entire team) received new or refresher training, generously sponsored by the US Fish & Wildlife Service and carried out on Ol Pejeta by 51 Degrees Ltd (a private wildlife security consulting company).
