The Gallmann Africa Conservancy / The Gallmann Memorial Foundation preserve the environment and wildlife of Ol ari Nyiro through various initiatives, such as:

Anti-poaching and Elephant protection
The Gallman organiations support, equip and train a private anti-poaching squad, the first of its kind founded in 1980

In dense bush, firebreaks are needed to prevent recurrent bush fires that destroy thousand of acres of precious biodiversity in the dry season, the project regularly engages in creating fire breaks in the conservancy's extensive road network. By employing community members to cut firebreaks the project provides much needed employment but also supplies the community with sustainable firewood to prevent deforestation.

Kenya’s indigenous forests have been depleted at an unprecedented rate over the past few decades to produce poor quality charcoal and make way for inefficient agricultural land use. Only pockets of indigenous forests now survive. The Engelesha Cedar forest on the Southern end of the conservancy is one of these, home to melanistic leopards and colobus monkeys, a species of butterfly previously undescribed to science and several rare bids. The Mukutan Conservancy is initiating a reforestation project to re-plant an area adjacent to the Engelesha forest which was cleared for wheat agriculture long ago. The reforestation project will return substantial benefits to the community- not only through employment and out-growers schemes but also through the sustainable wild harvest of indigenous forest products. It will also serve as a secondary barrier (between 2 fences) between the farming community in the south and potentially crop raiding animals.
