Despite all this successful implementation of our projects Westgate has also been facing various challenges.

  • Security issues like cattle rustling from our neighbouring areas hence interfering with our operations,
  • Limited resources to implement some community projects which are identified as critical needs
  • Plans implementation has been a challenge as a result of natural climatic changes
  • Encroachment From external communities on grass management in the whole ranch.
  • Expansive Land degradation in and encroachment of invasive species hence damaging some of the key wildlife habitats

 

NEXT PLANS

 

Some of the main activities ahead of us as a conservancy are:

 

  • Expansion and implementation of grazing planning both in wet and dry season
  • Strengthening our monitoring systems of vegetation, wildlife for effective reporting
  • Need to training and expose the newly elected grazing committee members
  • Development and reviewing of the conservancy strategic plan as the old is expiring
  • Strengthen our partnership with development partners for community projects
  • Continued wildlife conservation awareness locally within the community and neighbours for wildlife ownership.
  • To strengthen monitoring to ascertain the impact of range rehabilitation to wildlife numbers and population
  • Establish Westgate as a centre for community training on holistic and range management in Kenya and east Africa
