Wildlife Works’ Kasigau Corridor REDD+ Project protects over 500,000 acres of highly threatened Kenyan forest known as the Kasigau Corridor, securing the entire wildlife migration corridor between Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks.

Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) was originated by the United Nations to help stop the destruction of the world’s forests. “REDD+” goes beyond deforestation and includes the role of conservation, community development and job creation, and enhancement of forest carbon stocks among other benefits.
 

Social and Sustainability Benefits
