One of our most exciting and fulfilling programs at WildlifeDirect is education and outreach. Children across Kenya join our Wildlife Warriors Kids Clubs for place-based learning in their schools and communities.
On June 5th, World Environment Day, WildlifeDirect launched the Wildlife Warriors Kids ‘Restoring Nature Challenge’ in partnership with Mpala Research Centre. Two schools won seed funding of Ksh 100,000 ($1,000), two won Ksh 75,000 ($750), and four won Ksh 50,000 ($500).
WildlifeDirect is marking this year’s World Environment Day by launching the Wildlife Warriors Kids Restoring Nature Challenge in partnership with Mpala Research Centre. The Challenge is targeting public and community primary schools in Kenya. Every year on June 5th the world celebrates World Environment Day; a United Nations day set aside to create awareness and take actions that protect the environment.
