Dalmas is the Founder and Executive Director of the Maasai Center for Regenerative Pastoralism, a Kenya-based nonprofit which works with Maasai pastoralists to implement regenerative land management practices. Dalmas founded the Maasai Centre for Regenerative Pastoralism in 2013 in response to devastating drought that wiped out almost all the community's livestock. The Centre works to improve degraded soils on Maasai-owned land in Kajiado County, Kenya, to provide permanent solutions to the challenges of drought, desertification, and food and water security. One of the core objectives of the resilience measures being investigated is the use of ‘holistic planned grazing’ which has been shown to regenerate grasslands that are turning into desert. Holistic planned grazing makes grasslands more resilient to drought and flooding.
