The Maasai wilderness conservation trust story
The legendary wilderness of Africa’s vast grassland ecosystems and the traditional culture of the Maasai people.

On November 1, 2009 acclaimed actor Edward Norton took to the streets of New York City with three Maasai Warriors from Kenya to run the New York City marathon. They ran with a team of 30 runners to raise awareness and funding for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (MWCT) and raised over $1.2 million, mostly in small donations. The campaign and the success of this unusual team was widely publicized and reported on and supporters from all over the world donated to support their cause.
