This study focuses on three community conservation projects in Kenya : the Mwaluganje Community Elephant Sanctuary, the Il Ngwesi Tourist Bandas, and the Kimana Community Wildlife Sanctuary. The first unit of study explores a number of untested assumptions behind community conservation and includes recommendations to continue international support for conservation efforts and to use a variety of approaches to conservation. The second unit of study identifies criteria that influence conservation success and provides a conceptual model to help determine effective conservation approaches depending on local development and conservation priorities. The third unit of study explores the relationship between conservation, poverty, and empowerment, and shows that these three projects have generally contributed little towards poverty alleviation as measured by eight aspects of social empowerment. This thesis concludes that more effort must be put into quantitative data collection, empowering local people, and on taking a global as well as site-specific approach to conservation.
