Huge influxes of cattle during he drought in 2017 meant that many of the African wild dogs in Laikipia were wiped out by canine distemper virus.
However, after a year of no sightings, staff at #LoisabaStarBeds were excited to hear the unique calls of a pack of wild dogs on Monday!
The highest priority for the conservation of wild dogs is dealing with habitat fragmentation. A crucial part of the work we do at Loisaba is to help protect vital wildlife corridors for all species to safely cross. Last weekend’s episode of #Dynasties showed just how important this connectivity is to the conservation of African wild dogs.
Land connected. Life protected.

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.

#InternationalCheetahDay

There are fewer than 7,100 cheetahs left in the wild, meaning that they are Africa’s most endangered big cat.
The biggest threat to cheetahs remains habitat degradation and fragmentation. If small populations of cheetahs are isolated, the genetic viability would be so low that it would lead to local extinction.
Our work here at Loisaba ensures not only the protection of habitat, but also connectivity to other areas that is so vital for the survival of species.

Our partners @lionlandscapes are running a campaign for their Lion Ranger programme, please support them here: https://www.lionlandscapes.org/rangers.
Although lions are the biggest African predator with a male lion weighing approximately 200kg, they are very elusive and often difficult to see. Lion Rangers keep track of lions and warm livestock owners to keep their livestock away from known lion locations, preventing opportunistic attacks.

Satellite collars help us to track the movements of lions living amongst people and livestock. Real time movement data from these dollars reaches us about how lions survive in human-dominated landscapes, and helps to prevent human-lion conflict by keeping livestock away from known lion locations.
Here at Loisaba we support @lionlandscapes, who are currently raising funds for their #LionRanger campaign (link in bio)

Lions are not easy to co-exist with. The good news is that lions do learn to stay away from people and their livestock, as long as the livestock is well protected and that there is wild prey for lions to eat.
@lionlandscapes are hoping to raise $12,000 for a lion ranger team, in response to requests for help from local livestock owners to reduce livestock killed by lions and avoid lions being killed in retaliation. The Lion Rangers will form a network of human-carnivore conflict experts across the landscape, helping address livestock depredation problems in a more coordinated and effective way.

Giving Tuesday!
This year, Loisaba Community Conservation Foundation, Inc.'s #GivingTuesday is focused on the construction of a new school to provide an education for 133 children from several small villages. These children of Samburu, Turkana and Pokot pastoralists deserve an education as much as any other child. Your support will #EmpowerThroughEducation in an area that otherwise will never have a school. This small school will be the home to BIG dreams for countless students for years to come.
By donating (http://www.loisabaccf.org/donate/), liking and sharing this message you can help make a difference in the lives of so many students who are trying to pursue their educational dreams. $65,000 is needed to make this dream a reality. LCCF needs your help!
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT - Your donation could have twice the impact thanks to an anonymous donor - all funds donated will be matched up to $7,500! ———————————————————————

In October last year, an 8 month old calf was found alone and severely malnourished. With help from @tropicairkenya and @kenyawildlifeservice, he was transported to @r.e.s.c.u.e to be looked after until he is strong enough to fend for himself.
The team at Reteti have done an excellent job, and it was great to see Loisaba doing so well and having fun playing with the other rescued elephants.
Thanks again to the team at @r.e.s.c.u.e for their continued hard work!

Yesterday morning, our security team spotted a badly injured Grevy’s zebra. As they are an endangered species, they contacted vets at KWS to come and treat him. He’s now back on his feet and his recovery will be monitored closely. Well done to our Security Team and the Nanyuki Mobile Vet Unit! #zebra #Grevyszebra #endangeredspecies ———————————————————————

Nanyuki and her brother Memusi joined Loisaba Security’s Canine Unit in May, and are receiving continuous training in order to contribute towards anti-poaching and the safety and security of the conservancy. Guests staying at Loisaba Tented Camp and Loisaba Star Beds have the opportunity to visit them and be part of a tracking demonstration by our older bloodhounds, Warrior and Machine.

‘Reticulated giraffes across the regions in northern Kenya have declined up to 70% in the past 30 years’

Important research by @sandiegozoo ‘s Twiga Walinzi team here at Loisaba Conservancy is using new software to help identify individuals by their unique coat patterns.
