Taita Taveta WIldlife Forum

Taita/Taveta Wildlife Forum (TTWF) came into being in 2000 when the local landowners realized the need to join hands in order to address the rampant Human-Wildlife conflict in the region, environmental destruction and the quest for benefit-sharing from Tsavo National Park.

It is a Community Based Organization operating in the Tsavo ecosystem and a membership organization. It was incorporated as a Trust under the Perpetual Succession Act Cap 264 of the Laws of Kenya in March 2003. It is governed by 9 elected Trustees drawn from its administrative zones – Voi, Wundanyi, Mwatate and Taveta.

Sensitization & Advocacy

We enhance the Capacity of the Local Community and Lawmakers to Participate in and Contribute to Natural Resources Policy Development and Legislation favourable to Taita and Taveta Districts.

We also create awareness on various issues affecting the community and environment and engage the community as much as possible.

Advocacy has remained as one of our tools necessary to push through policies and decisions to be made in favour of the community. TTWF has been in the forefront in ensuring that the community has been served right by the government, institutions and the organizations.
