The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya works as a catalyst for conservation. It does this through the protection and management of species and their habitats, the support of community conservation initiatives, and the education of neighbouring communities in the value of wildlife.
Please Note: donors seeking to support specific projects must have designations vetted in advance by Lewa Canada at firstname.lastname@example.org. All projects are subject to approval and oversight as determined by the Lewa Canada board in its sole and absolute discretion, in accordance with Canadian law, including designations to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya, the Northern Rangelands Trust, Ol Pejeta Conservancy and/or Save the Elephants.
About THE LEWA WILDLIFE CONSERVANCY (CANADA)
The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (LWC) is a non-profit wildlife sanctuary in Kenya covering 62,000 acres. The principal activities of the Conservancy are wildlife conservation and land management combined with extensive community education and health services.
Lewa Canada's two main roles are to: increase awareness of and raise funds for LWC; and facilitate and increase Canada's educational, research and other linkages with LWC. Lewa Canada is managed by an all-volunteer Board comprised of 8 members. The Board is committed to helping LWC achieve its goals, and includes members with expertise in education, finance, fundraising, marketing, media and wildlife research.
The all-volunteer efforts of Lewa Canada's Board and Advisory Council have enabled the transfer of over 98% of all funds received to LWC in Kenya.
