Origin: a Latin derivative
meaning "Gift of the Earth."
The Maasai Mara ecosystem in Kenya and Tanzania is often referred to as the Eighth Wonder of the World. It’s home to millions of animals that migrate through the savannah grasslands. The stunning Maasai Mara has captured the hearts of countless tourists.
However, the changing climate, lifestyles, and rapidly growing populations are making the future of this incredible place—and the livelihoods of the people who live there—uncertain.
Together with our sourcing partner, Fairoils, doTERRA has a unique opportunity to help maintain the integrity of the northernmost point of the Maasai Mara through Co-Impact Sourcing.
Diamond and above leaders can form Wellness Advocate groups to experience the Maasai Mara ecosystem firsthand and understand how Co-Impact Sourcing works to protect one of the world’s most precious natural wonders. doTERRA has partnered with the Enonkishu Conservancy, an industry-leading conservation organization, and their professional travel company to manage logistics and provide you with the best possible experience.
Enonkishu and the surrounding conservancies offer an incredible safari and cultural experience at an exclusive rate. You’ll enjoy discounted conservation fees thanks to doTERRA contributions to Enonkishu and the important projects we pursue together.
Enonkishu Conservancy works tirelessly with surrounding conservancies, government leaders, and local communities to revitalize tired grasslands. doTERRA and Fairoils have joined Enonkishu to continue this important work by donating 10% of essential oil proceeds developed in this partnership back to the Conservancy. doTERRA and Fairoils are also setting up a Co-Impact Sourcing project with local communities to provide meaningful additional sources of income to small-scale farmers and pastoralists, as well as extensive training on conservation, human-wildlife conflict, and environmentally sustainable practices.
