Olare Motorogi May Wildilfe Report – Mara Plains & Mara Toto, Kenya

As many of you know, Richard and Lorna are no longer managing Mara Plains (although they always have a seat at the table) and are onto other projects. Richard is the warden of the Olare Motorogi Conservancy while Lorna is assisting with community outreach.

In this capacity, we have Richard’s latest Olare Motorogi Wildlife report- May 2014.
