The drought in Kenya has reached catastrophic levels and there are no signs of it abating. To support the national effort to raise awareness we partnered with Charlie Hamilton-James, a Nat Geo photographer to tell the stories in pictures. These photographs can be distressing so please click on this link if you want to see what we observed in the Kajiado and Amboseli region. We hope that these pictures will influence conversations at the upcoming Biodiversity conference, as well as the new Kenya government policies and regulations.

As you plan your spring cleaning, go through your stores and look at all the stuff you’ve not used in ages, AND DO NOT NEED ANYMORE, please consider us for a donation. We are setting up a field camp for kids to give them a chance to learn outdoorsmanship, camp life, citizen science, etc. We have a lovely large mess tent and we will be putting it up this weekend in the bush just south of Nairobi. This will be the base for all our Wildlife Warrior Kids activities going forwards.
