Happy Earth Day from Loisaba! The theme for 2019 is ‘protect our species’. We are currently amidst the largest period of species extinction in the last 60 million years. Normally, between one and five species will go extinct annually. However, scientists estimate that we are now losing species at 1,000 - 10,000 times the normal rate, with multiple extinctions daily.
It is critical that we act now to save habitats and species. Land connected, life protected.
If you would like to help us save endangered species such as the reticulated giraffe, visit www.loisaba.com/donate (link in bio)

Loisaba’s mission is to protect and enhance critical wildlife diversity, abundance and habitat in the landscape, which sits on the western edge of one of Kenya’s most important elephant movement corridors. The profit from #LoisabaTentedCamp and #LoisabaStarBeds, along with revenue from livestock, brings us closer to achieving our ultimate aim of creating a sustainable conservancy providing protection of endangered species and their habitat, as well as over 300 jobs to the local community.

Happy Easter from Loisaba!
Very unusual sighting this morning of a fiscal shrike sitting on a savanna hare. These birds are also called butcher birds due to their habit of impaling their prey on acacia thorns to store the food for later.

We are incredibly saddened to hear the news that the world’s only known female Yangtze giant soft shell turtle has died at 90 years old. Attempts to artificially inseminate her have been unsuccessful, and she leaves behind just three confirmed individuals of the species.
These turtles are very secretive and the lakes and large rivers that they are going in are large and complex, so there are hopes there are more members of the species undetected in the wild. They are listed as critically endangered due to loss of habitat from infrastructure development and river damming, poaching for meat and eggs and capture for the pet trade.
If you would like to contribute to help Loisaba save further species from extinction, please visit our website and click the ‘donate’ button.

Great sighting of a striped hyena at one of our dams! Striped hyenas are the smallest of the three species of hyena, and are usually difficult to spot due to their solitary nocturnal lifestyle. ©️ Alastair Boyd

Gerenuks are by far the most unique looking antelope with their long, slender necks and limbs. They are found in the dryer areas of East Africa, and can go their entire lives without taking a drink of water! Instead, they extract all the moisture they need from their diet of leaves, shoots, flowers and vines. ©️Alastair Boyd

Baby elephant leading the way for this herd! An elephant’s trunk has eight major muscles on either side and 150,000 muscle bundles in total. It is so strong that it can push down trees and lift an impressive 300kg! ©️Hannah Campbell

Great to see our guests capturing such amazing photos of the wildlife at Loisaba’s! Cheetahs are the only “big cat” that cannot roar, but they can purr and do so mostly when they are grooming or near other cheetahs. ©️Phil Carter
