At Ol Pejeta, we strongly believe that if the next generation of children is educated about conservation, we have won half the battle to save our planet and its endangered species. Thus were happy to receive students from Nairobi’s Banda School, who took part in our dog tracking activity and heard first hand from Zachariah, Fatu and Najin's devoted keeper. Earlier in the year, the students had held a safari themed fundraiser at their school and managed to raise Kshs 95,910 (close to US$1,000) towards our conservation work. With these much needed funds, we purchased a nebulizer, which has gone a long way to help administer medication to wildlife, and three binoculars for rhino monitoring by our rangers. We thank the children of the Banda School for choosing to support Ol Pejeta Conservancy and for making the world a better place. #olpejeta#wildlifeconservation#wildlifeprotection#childreninconservation#protectingbiodiversity#endangeredspecies#racingextinction#protectingrhinos#saveourrhinos
[@outboundee] Malaysia’s last male Sumatran rhino died in May, leaving just one sole survivor of the species - a female. His passing represents a significant blow to the two-horned creatures’ chances of long-term survival. Thanks to poaching and habitat loss, the species’ population now stands at fewer than 80 members, most of whom are scattered across the islands of Sumatra and Borneo.
Sometimes we blend in and sometimes we stand out. For frogs, blending in saves their lives but for humans it just makes life boring IMO (unless you are trying to get wildlife photos, blending in helps😅) . . ~Juvenile Green Frog~ (Lithobates clamitans)
