Northern Kenya Rangelands Project
The Northern Kenya Rangelands Project, in partnership with the Northern Rangelands Trust and Soils for the Future is providing the resources to improve grazing practices in the region. The land, covering more than 2 million acres, is on the path to improved soil health, more robust ecosystems and increased carbon sequestration thanks to these strategies

Quote from Native
"The Northern Kenya Rangelands project is the world's first large-scale grasslands soil carbon project, and currently one of the few landscape-level carbon removal ventures on the market today. Supporting this project helps to improve grassland health and sequester carbon in the soils, generate income for local communities, improve resilience to drought and climate change, and enhance habitats for key endangered species."

Quote from Northern Rangelands Trust
"The Northern Kenya Rangelands Carbon Project has created additional and much needed income for communities to meet their own needs and will improve rangelands conditions for their livestock and enhance conservation efforts across the project area, including the improvement of habitat for four endemic endangered species – the Eastern black rhino, Grevy’s zebra, Reticulated giraffe and Beisa oryx, as well as addressing impacts of climate change. The funds, which will be allocated by the community itself to various projects, will have a significant positive impact on livelihoods as well offering drought resilient incomes to those in the landscape, together these are small but strong steps towards fighting climate change."
