Promoting Conservation of Endangered Fauna and Renewable Energy in North Western Mount Kenya
Promoting Conservation of Endangered Fauna and Renewable Energy in North Western Mount Kenya
The NGO will mobilize the community to participate in project implementation and capacity building. They will partner with two conservancies in maintaining inventories of fauna and identifying potential threats to the same in the communal lands. The project will train teachers and environmental education officers at nearby conservancies to educate students and visitors to the conservancies regarding the endangered fauna species, human-wildlife conflicts, renewable energy, and environmental conservation. Brochures and posters will also be designed, produced, and distributed as part of the project.
