Site Support Groups

Nature Kenya recognizes communities as champions for conservation of nature. We engage them through Site Support Groups (SSGs) approach in and around priority conservation supporting them to:

•    Build their capacity to develop nature-based enterprises

•    Monitor species and habitats

•    Create awareness on biodiversity conservation

•    Rehabilitate degraded habitats

•    Enhance their organizational/institutional capacities

•    Mitigate threats to biodiversity
