ARTFAMCDK( @Artfam Creative Designs Kenya) is an organisation with a mission to advocate for the conservation of wildlife through campaign walks; creating awareness & educating both local and international communities about the urgent need to save wildlife from extinction especially the functionally extinct Northern White Rhinos.

Artfamcdk's wildlife Conservationists(Rhino Kennedy & Rhino Kelvin) successfully completed "SAVING THE WORLD'S LAST FEMALES NORTHERN WHITE RHINOS;#205KMS WALK FOR FATU & NAJIN) from Nairobi to Nanyuki/Ol Pejeta Conservancy(30th Aug, 2021 to 22nd Sept, 2021). The team raised over USD 4200 and donated the funds to Ol Pejeta Conservancy safeguarding it's Rhino population.

Next year in August-September 2023, Artfamcdk is planning to walk for 320.9(199miles) from NAIROBI-NAKURU-NANYUKI(OL PEJETA CONSERVANCY) creating awareness on the plight of northern white rhinos and wildlife conservation at large.

WHY WALK TO SAVE THE NORTHERN WHITE RHINOS FROM EXTINCTION?

There are now just two northern white rhinoceros remaining in the world. Najin(born JULY 11th,1989) mother to Fatu born on 29th JUNE,2000 (both female) live under constant protection from poachers in Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Sudan (the last remaining male) died on March 19th 2018, effectively rendering the entire subspecies extinct. The northern white rhino was once abundant across Central Africa but staggering rates of illegal hunting/poaching for its horn have already led to its (almost certain) extinction in the wild.

Rhino experts are now exploring the possibility of artificial reproduction technologies, using in vitro fertilisation and southern white rhino surrogates as a way to preserve and maintain northern white rhino genes into the future. Could this subspecies be brought back from extinction? The future is uncertain and it is a race against time.

Fatu(21 years), daughter of 32-years-old Najin, is now the only donor left in programme aiming to implant artificially developed embryos into another more abundant rhino species.

Scientists hope to implant embryos made from the rhinos' egg cells and frozen sperm from deceased males into surrogate mothers.

So far they have 12 pure northern white rhino embryos.The team hopes to be able to deliver its first northern white rhino calf in three years and a wider population in the next two decades.

We are very optimistic that the project will succeed.

Raising awareness about wildlife conservation.The local people opinion plays a vital role in the conservation of biodiversity and environment. In general, when inhabitants understand the ecological and economic roles of wild fauna, they spontaneously participate in its conservation.

TREES FOR WILDLIFE πŸŒ±πŸ¦πŸ˜πŸƒπŸ¦“πŸ¦’πŸ’šπŸŒ³

Update posted by KENNEDY THUKU at 06:09 am

Trees are powerhouses when it comes to regulating city microclimates β€” filtering air pollution, providing shade, absorbing CO2, helping prevent flash flooding, as well as acting as an important antidote to the urban heat island effect that makes cities far hotter than surrounding rural areas.#TEAMTREES #planttreessaveearth #planttreeseveryday

We all should give back to the society. Riding bikes for a cause and creating awareness about wildlife conservation and the urgent need to save wildlife and people from a crisis of hunger, thirst and disease is giving back to the society which we live.Public awareness is a must for. . . . .
