Since 2017, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service RTCF (Rhino and Tiger Conservation Fund) through Fauna & Flora International has supported Ol Pejeta’s black rhino conservation program. The long-term goal of this project is to enhance black rhino conservation Ol Pejeta by eliminating human-induced losses to poaching, and maintaining a high rhino population growth rate to contribute to the expansion of Kenya’s black rhino population.
In light of this, one of the projects activities is to support increased access and accompanied visits by local community members to Ol Pejeta, with the aim of improving awareness and understanding of rhino conservation, its threats and needs.
Last month, 4 communities namely Mwakinya, Ex-Rock, Tharua and Riacho as well as students from Withare Primary school were brought into the conservancy under the program.
These visits enable us to have engaging discussions with community members on the need to protect wildlife as well as increasing local awareness on the importance and significance of Ol Pejeta’s rhino conservation program.

This morning we were privileged to have Ben Woodhams, join our armed ranger team for a morning run on Ol Pejeta Conservancy. 7 year old Ben is a participant in the @ForRangers Virtual Ultra Marathon and has managed to finish the 1,245 km race in just under 6 months! He has also managed to raise $2,384 in support of the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep rhino safe on Ol Pejeta. Such impressive feats for a young boy with an indefatigable spirit.
Accompanied by his dad Adam Woodhams, Ben ran a 7.71km stretch with our armed ranger team, incredibly leading from start to finish!
We are so proud of you Ben and hope that other kids get inspired by your sacrifice for conservation!
As we celebrate #25YearsofSweetwaters, we'd like to honour two special people who have been integral to the well-being of the chimpanzees at the Sanctuary for the past quarter century.
Richard Mutai (left) and Joseph Maiyo (right) have been at Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary since it opened it’s for the first time in 1993. They have seen it all in their 25 years at Ol Pejeta - the excitement of new arrivals at Sweetwaters, the joy of seeing a formerly captive chimpanzee enjoying life in the wild and seeing persistent males finally gain alpha male status at the Sanctuary - among other fascinating chimpanzee milestones at Sweetwaters.
We salute you gentlemen for your passion, dedication and commitment to giving chimpanzees a safe, loving home in the wild among others of their kind. #WorldChimpanzeeDay#conservation#primates#GreatApe#WhyILoveKenya#JaneGoodall#OlPejeta#WildlifeConservation#25Years#GreatApeConservation#ThankYou
#DidYouKnow The gestation period for chimpanzees is 8 and a half months, almost similar to that of humans. Chimpanzees will stay with their moms for up to 4 years after which they become independent.
Today we are celebrating the 1st ever World Chimpanzee Day as well as the 25th Anniversary of Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary. The overall aims of commemorating this day are to celebrate mans’ closest relative in the animal kingdom, raise awareness about threats they face in the wild and promoting their proper care in captive situations.
Throughout today we will be sharing interesting facts about chimpanzees as well as interesting tidbits on Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary as well as how you can help support conservation of this endangered species.
