The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust recognises the importance of working with the local communities in conserving wildlife
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust recognises the importance of working with the local communities in conserving wildlife. In the Tsavo Conservation Area, the DSWT is supporting sustainable projects that aim to elevate poor education standards in schools bordering the parks and improving community livelihoods.
In October 2016, the Community Outreach Team donated assorted text books, sports equipment, and long lasting school desks to Metava Primary school through the ‘Adopt a School Program’, whilst the team also hosted three fully sponsored school trips and arranged two wildlife film shows in other schools in the Kibwezi area.
