WildlifeDirect, a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of Africa's wildlife, is pleased to announce the roll out of its new Nature Positive Kids Outreach Program which is an extension of the National Geographic’s Team Sayari educational entertainment Program.

We're thrilled to be back and to bring you the latest updates from our film, conservation, education and outreach programs.

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.

Thank you to everyone who joined the energetic team of 200 people who gathered virtually to discuss how we can accelerate African filmmaking and storytelling to save wildlife.

How can we make it happen?”
