The Mount Kenya Trust

As a vitally important water tower providing ecosystem services to millions of people and businesses in Kenya, Mount Kenya can be viewed as the heart and lungs of the country.

People’s livelihoods, the Kenyan economy, rich biodiversity and endangered species are all threatened by the pressures on Mount Kenya’s diverse and biologically rich ecosystems.

Established in 2000, The Mount Kenya Trust was set up to help protect and restore the integrity of the forests and wildlife of Mount Kenya by partnering with Government Agencies, communities and other stakeholder organisations in the region.
