PROT EC T I O N OF N AT UR A L HER ITAGE: BIODIVE RSITY CONSE RVATION

OL DONYO LODGE

KENYA

In partnership with the Big Life Foundation, ol Donyo supports anti-poaching efforts in the Amboseli-Tsavo region of Kenya, including funding for the Predator Compensation Fund, which compensates local Maasai for livestock killed by predators and has helped reduce the killing of lions.

ROSALIE BAY RESORT

DOMINICA

Thanks to an island-wide sea turtle education and conservation program begun by the lodge owners in 2002, Rosalie Bay’s beaches welcome endangered leatherback, hawksbill, and green turtles every year. A concerted effort to provide conservation education to local communities, collect data on turtle nests, clean beaches, and protect and monitor turtle activity has resulted in an increase in sea turtle nesting and hatching—from just seven nests in 2002 to more than 100 in 2016.
