Livestock & Agriculture
The mismanagement of livestock and farmland, is one of the contributing factors to climate change, deforestation, pollution, over-grazing, and erosion, releasing carbon into the atmosphere and leaving land unable to renew itself.
At Mugie, we think it’s not what you do, it is how you do it – properly managed agriculture and livestock are tools that can return land to productivity, increase biodiversity, trap carbon in the soil, support conservation, and feed growing populations in the fragile environment of northern Kenya.
Farming is also important to Mugie Conservancy because it is important to our neighbours’ livelihoods and culture. Community cooperation and sustainable commerce, including tourism, are essential to sustainable conservation, so their interests are ours. Read about our Mugie Trading Stock program here.
