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.
In this edition of Wildlife Tracks, we share with you our continued efforts to secure the future of Nairobi National Park and highlights from “My Wild Africa” films that premiered on Citizen TV in mid-May. We also share with you a snippet of our 2019 activities as well as showcase photos from nature enthusiasts across the country who participated in season one of the Nature’s Treasures Photo Competition.
Under the banner of Conservation Alliance of Kenya, over 200 people came together from June 12-14 to address the question, “how can we ensure the management plan commits to protecting the unique, immeasurable ecological value and potential of the park for the public in Nairobi and beyond?”
WildlifeDirect launched a letter-writing campaign asking for more time and over 350 people wrote to the Ministry of Tourism and Wildlife, Kenya Wildlife Service, and the National Environment Management Authority. The Ministry granted two more months to allow for proper consultation.
