Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust
Work with Edward Norton and The Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (MWCT) on strategic ways to grow capacity for the organization. This has included helping create a 4 year/4 million dollar funders circle, as well as execute an innovative pr/social media campaign yielding $1.25 million in micro-donations.
MWCT has created a pioneering partnership between professional conservationists and young Maasai leaders as a means to sustainably protect the ecosystems and biodiversity of East Africa. They have also been tremendously successful in partnership-building with a diverse group of large organizations, leveraging substantial expertise and networks.
MWCT’s forward thinking approach to sustainable community-based conservation includes lease payments for conservancy zones, carbon credits, payments for watershed protection, sustainable ecotourism, wildlife monitoring and security, conservation and tourism employment.
