Founded in 1997, Wildlife Works has been a pioneer in market based solutions for conservation for 21 years.
In 2008, Wildlife Works expanded its 32k ha “Rukinga” wildlife sanctuary to protect 200k ha of the Kasigau Corridor establishing a safe haven for thousands of elephants and more than 300 species of other wildlife that cross from Tsavo East to Tsavo West National Parks.
In 2011, the Kasigau Corridor + project became the world’s first REDD+ project to be verified under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and the Climate, Community and Biodiversity Standard (CCB). The project was also awarded Gold Level status by the CCB for exceptional biodiversity and climate benefits. The project will generate 45m tons of Verified Emission Reductions (VERs) over 30 years.
