A team committed to transformative and sustainable conservation of the Amboseli Ecosystem
Our work and impact is steered by our two-tier leadership, comprising the Amboseli Governing Council and the Board of Trustees. The two are supported by a dedicated Secretariat.
Together, the AET strives to unite, amplify and scale transformative conservation efforts across the intricate Amboseli Ecosystem.
