About Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy
Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy (MKWC) is a not for profit organization dedicated to the Conservation of Wildlife in Kenya. It is nestled at the foot of Mount Kenya forest ecosystem, a world heritage site (by UNESCO) and an important biodiversity area. MKWC acts as a buffer to neighbouring communities from wildlife, preventing conflict between humans and wildlife through crop destruction, poaching, and aggressive wild animals.
Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy (MKWC) was founded in 2004 by Don Hunt and Iris Hunt. It is a Kenyan registered nonprofit trust. Its main purpose was to take over the conservation programs run by the Mount Kenya Game Ranch.
Our vision is to conserve wildlife species in Kenya with a keen focus on the critically endangered Mountain Bongo by maintaining sustainable captive breeding herds for reintroduction into the wild & promoting species research.
