Wild Nature Institute celebrated the international day of forests by planting trees at Eunoto primary school, at Mungere village. A total of 150 native trees were planted with the help of students. Each student dug a hole and prepared organic manure from cow droppings and did the planting and watering themselves. Most of the students are coming from Maasai pastoralist communities. The area has plenty of water with a lot of birds and other wildlife from Lake Manyara and Mto wa Mbu.
All trees were planted successfully, thanks to kids who were learning quickly and eager to do the planting on their own. The school administration promised to look after trees and see them grow healthy.
We were joined by village officers and ward forest officers in the event, who were thankful to Wild Nature Institute for doing this for their village
Wild Nature Institute donated 150 of our Celebrating Africa's Giants bi-lingual (Kiswahili and English) children's books to 25 primary school libraries in Kenya, in partnership with Books Are Power, Inc.
These libraries together serve more than 7,000 Kenyan primary school children per year.
We are excited to share some photos of Kenyan children enjoying Our Elephant Neighbours, Juma the Giraffe, and Helping Brother Rhinoceros. These storybooks help make learning about African wildlife fun and accessible, while teaching language skills with the story side-by-side in English and Kiswahili.
