On a mission to protect elephants within the Maasai Mara in the face of poaching and expanding human development, the Mara Elephant Project is a boots-on-the-ground initiative with a particular focus on solving human/wildlife conflict, as elephants wander outside of protected areas and into nearby communities.

Entry fees donated to the MEP will be used to fund ranger patrol teams, and purchase much-needed equipment — including new collars to track the movements of over 20 elephants in the region.
