One of our goals for enterprise development in 2019 is to work with local partners to create a honey house. Amos, pictured here, is a key member of the group that will be involved with this project that aims to create a place for local honey🍯 farmers to package and distribute their honey more efficiently. •

Meet Eric.
Eric is an eastern black rhino all the way from the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. He was donated to Tanzania as part of an ongoing effort to save the species from extinction.
The hope for Eric is that he can become a free-ranging wild rhino in the Serengeti in the next 12 - 18 months.

Thank you @blackbeanproductions for this special clip of Eric! •••

Thrilled to have @blackbeanproductions team here! Love this shot taken today by @alizejireh. •
This year there will be 18 different schools that will send students through the Grumeti Fund’s Environmental Education Center. The program teaches students from the surrounding communities (50/50 boy/girl) about the environment - how it works, why it’s important and how they can be stewards for this beautiful place they call home. •

An Ostrich - the worlds largest and flightless bird. Photo taken by @blackbeanproductions during a shoot for their documentary on human-wildlife conflict @edgeofexistencefilm - an issue we tackle daily (in December alone the Grumeti Fund responded to 40 different reports of human-wildlife conflict). The Black Bean team is back at Grumeti tomorrow to film projects on the go here, so follow along for more. •

While elephants are in real threat across the continent and we must all do everything we can - in any way we can - to stop the poaching, we are fortunate here at Grumeti for an increasing population. We believe that a sound anti-poaching team and conservation management department has been integral to the four fold increase that we’ve experienced over the last 15 years.

Tanzania is a stronghold for leopard - a species that is estimated to be decreasing across Africa, having disappeared from 40% of their historical range. Human wildlife conflict and habitat loss form a significant threat to this elegant cat.

Like many rural women in the region Grace Matiko was married at 16 soon after finishing her primary school. She is a wife, a mother to five children (two boys and three girls), and a new business owner.
After graduating from Grumeti Fund’s Village Learning training, Grace decided to start her own business as a tailor/seamstress. She became an apprentice to a professional tailor and gained skills enabling her to run her own business. “My future plan is to open a big office with modern equipment. After attending the training I learned a lot about myself, business and what I want to do with my life.
Sessions like ‘what is business’ identify opportunities and vision, changing views and overcoming fear have helped me to look at the world with a different perspective and to take action. •

If you’re New Years resolution is to stay fit, you should be motivated by the Grumeti Fund scouts! They train almost every day! In their profession it’s imperative to be super fit and agile so CrossFit sessions and long military style runs with weighted backpacks are the norm. Follow along for training inspiration #grumetifundstrong

In 2018 the Grumeti Fund, in partnership with TAWIRI, collared 30 elephants in an effort to prevent human - elephant conflict. The remote download GPS collars are integrated with the @vulcaninc EarthRanger domain awareness system which we use to track the elephants. If an elephant is moving toward village land an alert is sent to the Operations Room and we deploy a mitigation unit which safely pushes the elephants out of the village and into the protected area- safeguarding the livelihoods of the people living near the protected area and the elephants from persecution. @singita_ guests and philanthropists joined us for these collarings, enabling the project to take place in collaboration with the Grumeti Fund. In 2019 we will look to offer more hands on experiences with the Fund - so stay tuned for some opportunities to get involved later in the year. •

In the last year the Grumeti Fund, in partnership with TAWIRI, collared 30 elephants. This project is aimed at reducing human elephant conflict happening on the boundary of the protected area and villages. Using the @vulcaninc EarthRanger domain awareness system our team can track the elephants’ movements. When an elephant moves out of the protected area it sends an alert to our operations room and a mitigation unit is deployed to move the elephant safely back into the protected area - eliminating crop/ livelihood damage and also protected the elephant from any persecution. Singita guests and philanthropists joined us and enabled the projects to take place. We will have some more opportunities for some hands on involvement in 2019 so stay tuned for projects happening later in the year! •
