Tumaren is a three thousand acre property purchased by Tumaren Ltd. in June of 2006 for the sole purpose of conservation. The property’s management is undertaken by Tumaren Ltd.’s Directors, Kerry Glen and James Christian who also fund and support various other conservation efforts beyond the boundaries of Tumaren. These efforts include community outreach projects such as support for building or restoring school buildings, support for medical teams, and anti-poaching patrols. Environmental Education is an area that Tumaren would like to focus on in the future. Through scholarships and funding for qualified students to pursue Environmentally focused education Tumaren will help the local community to generate more ideas, discourse and momentum when dealing with Natural Resource Issues. Like so many small African communities, those that abut Tumaren are rich in wildlife resources as well as motivated young people eager to make those resources pay. Education is that enabler and it is the belief of Tumaren’s Directors that investments in local education is simultaneously an investment in the welfare of the area’s environment and wildlife.
