Mara Conservancy – Security plays a key role
News & Events
Mara Conservancy, a not-for-profit management company, was set up as a response to the concern of the local leaders about the levels of mismanagement in the Mara Triangle, the North Western section of the Maasai Mara National Reserve, in Kenya. A list of their ongoing achievements and goals include among others: improving infrastructure within the Triangle; maintaining a network of secondary roads and tracks to improve wildlife viewing; strengthening relationships between the Reserve and the surrounding areas by encouraging community projects and reward schemes for co-habiting with wildlife. Mara Conservancy manages the Mara Triangle with a fleet of seven vehicles that are fitted with Frotcom tracking devices. Additionally, Seiya Ltd. which is managing the Mara North Conservancy, has a fleet of six vehicles where Frotcom tracking devices are installed. According to Charles Gitau Ngugi, Finance & Administration Manager, “Frotcom devices have played a key role in the following areas: ensuring that security surveillance is carried out only at designated areas within Kenya and Tanzania borders; warnings are sent when vehicles go beyond the authorized radius; ensuring proper handling of vehicles by reporting over speeding; enforcing park rules – max speed allowed within the Park is 50km per hour; monitoring fuel consumption aimed at improving efficiency; satellite tracking which acted as an anti-theft device by giving us almost real time alerts on where our vehicles are.” With Frotcom you are back in command # # # If you’d like more information about this topic, please contact Frotcom International +351 214 135 670 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
