Community-based conservation is taking hold in East Africa. Groups of once-warring pastoralists have embraced wildlife conservation and are organizing their communally held lands as private conservancies. In a model developed by Kenyan Ian Craig, these democratically governed conservancies are funded through a blend of philanthropic, government, and earned-income sources and—as their numbers grow—are transforming lives, securing peace, and conserving natural resources across the continent.
