The Research Hub organized a “Meeting of the Minds” workshop in July 2019 to discuss the widespread fencing in the Mara that has adversely affected wildlife populations and threatened Kenya’s last remaining mammal migration. A policy paper was developed after the meeting and the findings shared with the County government.
A database consisting of more than 100 researchers was developed. A survey was circulated to everyone on the database as a tool to engage with those already working in the ecosystem as well as to better understand the activities of each person/institution.
A steering committee was formed to help establish a management framework for the organization. The steering committee which is currently functioning as the Board meets monthly to review the progress made and to set strategies on the way forward.
