Mission Statement


As part of our mandate to conservation of our environment, JATONET KENYA aims at “reconnecting” protected areas to surrounding lands looking at ecological, economic, institutional and cultural aspects. Western Kenya is one of the marvels of the world. In conjunction with other stake holders, we will organize for ways to support the local communities to apply their indigenous wisdom of natural resource management systems to conserving the unique endemic plant resources including community-declared protected areas and to development of their community based eco-tourism initiatives.
