Conservation Photography

We believe that through Conservation Research Photography, we give the public a chance to connect with conservation science at a personal level by not only personifying the wildlife effected by the issue at hand, but also by capturing the passion of the people involved in the conservation efforts..

Visual Ecological Literacy Program

We offer reality based environmental education using photos and films as tools to create conservation awareness. During the school visits we provide eco-visual environmental literacy training and also provide students with superb resources for engagement with mostly photos  that are obtain around their school environment. Also know as "Meet Your Neighbors" Project

Mitigation Project

The project focuses on addressing how 'negative environmental impacts' may be avoided or reduced. We do this through holding landscape restoration cafe's, supporting restoration projects and supporting nature based enterprises.

Saving Cranes – Cranes Conservation Volunteers

Crane Conservation Volunteers embarked on a journey to not only conserve the iconic species - The Grey Crowned Crane but to educate and sensitize the community on the importance of the birds and how they can coexist with these animals. This initiative demonstrates the impact community action can have. The site where they conduct their work holds the second largest population of cranes in Kenya.

THE MITIGATION PROJECT

The MITIgation project was conceptualized in 2019 January and has been reviewed on how best we may focus on impact using minimal resources. We focus on nurturing and growing of trees and linking the same process with students who are in Form one and class five, with the hope that they will find a link to nature using the one tree that they are expected to nature for the next four years, In addition we guide them on developing vision dream boards, that have a legacy. so that they live a life towards achieving there legacy on earth rather than just working towards the Kenyan Dream.
