Why we chose this project:

Living in Kenya we get to see wildlife in their natural habitats. We also get to hear about the dangers and threats these animals face. We would like to raise money for the Mara Elephant Project as they work hard to help elephants through problems such as deforestation- which destroys their habitats- and human-wildlife conflict. We think that every bit we do to help can make a difference in helping these animals. We know elephants are part of what makes Kenya so magical.

What we are doing:

Lene and Nina are living in Nairobi and enjoy spending time outside and in nature, going frequently to the Giraffe Sanctuary to see and be with the wildlife such as giraffes, warthogs, snakes, and birds. This has made us more passionate about nature and the environment and we want to do our part for our country in protecting it.

We will be spending 48 hours with the Mara Elephant Project rangers during their patrol in the Loita forest. This is a wildlife corridor between the Greater Mara and Shompole and Kajiado ecosystems. By doing this, we will learn and experience how and what the rangers work so hard to do to protect these Elephants.

The Loita Forest ranger unit is tasked with protecting wildlife from poaching, communities from conflict, and the forest from illegal habitat destruction activities such as logging, and charcoal production

We are excited to be a part of this meaningful work- to see firsthand what these rangers are doing to help elephants and hope to be able to raise money to help them continue and expand their efforts.
