Sustainability

The Borana Conservancy 'the not for profit' conservation foundation affiliated with Borana Ranch Ltd 'the commercial entity' and its shareholders are together committed to a local and national development agenda by helping build local livelihoods and enhancing eco-system integrity.

Borana Conservancy retains the ethos that conservation should be sustainable in posterity. This model recognises the fact that operational budgeting expenditure should be generated through our own commerce and dictates that should all external funding initiatives fail; then we should still be able to operate at the basest level.

Borana’s financial model is sustainable. Our partners help underwrite three-ninths of Borana’s annual budget, the rest of which is derived from commercial activities like tourism and livestock.  The budget is therefore reliant upon our commercial activities remaining secure in the face of a global downturn in tourism created by political instability, terrorist threats and a struggling global economy.

The management of Rhino is an ongoing process and the varying threats over time determine the requirements of its conservation practice. It is important that Borana is financially able to meet unforeseen requirements.

Borana’s ethos is to endeavor for financial sustainability for its core operating costs. However Borana understands the need to maintain a positive relationship with donors and the conservation community for special or unforeseen projects that are not included in the general capital budget, as well as the need not to compromise its conservation efforts in periods of poor revenue.

None of us can predict when the causes we support will capture the public imagination and our once lonely quests become popular crusades.
