Save Saiwa Swamp National Park, the pride of Kenya.

Saiwa Swamp National Park is a haven for endemic wildlife, including Grey Crowned Cranes, the shy otter, De Brazza monkeys, and Sitatunga antelopes, and is visited for guided bird watching tours and walking. The main threats facing Saiwa Swamp include illegal harvesting of water and firewood, climate change, and wildlife poisoning from the overuse of artificial fertilizers. This has contributed to wetland drainage, and an increase in human-wildlife conflict as wildlife invades local farms in search of food. International Tree Foundation and their local partner Kipsaina Crane and Wetland Conservation Group will work with neighbouring communities to rehabilitate 20 hectares of degraded land, by planting 30,000 native trees and removing invasive species alongside two rivers feeding into Saiwa Swamp. Environmental education will be provided to farmers, outdoor enthusiasts and local community members, supporting 200 farmers to adopt sustainable land management and wetland conservation actions through agroforestry, and improve livelihoods of 240 community members by encouraging environmentally friendly practices to reduce pressure on the wetlands.
