Since establishment the DSWT has been working with remote and marginalised communities through conservation programs aimed at sharing information and giving support to such communities living in wildlife dispersal areas, especially throughout the Tsavo Conservation Area. The Trust’s programs work mostly with schools and their local communities through fully sponsored school field trips to one of Tsavo’s National Parks, as well as wildlife film shows and environmental conservation lectures.
In May 2016 the DSWT carried out six school trips, three wildlife film shows and two conservation lectures in Maktau, which lies in the southern region of the Tsavo Conservation Area. The DSWT also held meetings with the Maktau area Chief and youth leaders to promote goodwill between the community and the DSWT in turn promoting the importance of wildlife and habitat conservation.
