Chui Team Mtito Update: 01 July 2004

This month the Mtito team joined up with Ziwani to help them in their first de-snaring operation. Together we collected a total of 231 snares and arrested seven poachers.


Kamunyu School took a trip to Tsavo west national park this week. The school was extremely grateful and learnt something about conservation, they also saw a large amount of wildlife and together we collected some litter. Kyusiani primary school and Nthunguni managed to tie third in the national primary school games in 2003 and 2004 now. Kerrigan waves have supported these schools with sporting equipment for a while now and with out this support these schools would not have taken part in any of these tournaments. The wildlife clubs in the schools are doing very well; all the trees that we had planted are now flourishing and the bird feeding tables are full of life. The seedlings have now been transplanted into plastic bags and are doing well in the trust nursery.
