276 SNARES COLLECTED
A total of 276 snares were lifted. Two animals, a warthog and a dikdik, were rescued and released from the snares.
A cross-cultural programme introduced by the trust through Sue and Joel, bridges the gap between the children of Kenya and the USA on conservation and their ways of life. Through this programme schools namely, Kamunyu, Iviani, Nthurgunu and Ngiluni were visited. The kids read letters and exchanged gifts with their Kenyan friends.
Video Shows and Sports
Three schools were visited to be shown wildlife video shows. These were Kamunyu, Ngiluni, and Joanna Chase secondary school. Linking conservation and sports remains a priority in our objective. Youths are encouraged to plant trees around the fields in order to provide shade for the spectators. Soccer matches were scheduled for 30th of January and the 13th of February. Both matches were very successful.
