NAEE Raising Future Conservationists by Florence Gichoya

After decades of conservation research in various landscapes in Kenya, a small group of Kenyan nationals founded the African Conservation Centre (ACC) in 1995. ACC’s work is mainly focused in four landscape areas in Kenya: Amboseli, Maasai Mara, Laikipia and the South Rift. These are have the richest vertebrate diversity in African and have a third of all Kenya’s wildlife population. Conservation education is at the heart of ACC’s work. It complements the academic curriculum by empowering and giving opportunities to schoolchildren to identify their role in conservation as well as taking action on issues affecting the environment.
