Dear friends and supporters of Soysambu Conservancy,
Our long-awaited website refresh is finally here! We have added lots of information and photos.
We hope you like the new look. Please send us your feedback.
Our Soysambu Conservancy UK Charity donation site is now operational.
Please donate to help support our conservation efforts with these wonderful animals, we can’t do it without your support. There is such a variety of amazing wildlife here on this World Heritage Site, from the giants like the giraffes right down to the very cute springhares, it would be a shame to let any of it go without the help it need. Please donate, any help you can give us is very much appreciated.
The week kicked off well with Desnaring within Soysambu Conservancy. The team comprised of two BORNFREE staff, Three Soysambu staff, three volunteers and one attachment student. The objective of the week was to remove snares on the various strategic areas of the Conservancy and educates both the students/pupils and the entire community on the effects of Game meat and other illegal activities on protected areas based on the current wildlife bill.
During the operation, one male impala was found dead in a snare. On the same note the team rescued a zebra through Desnaring.
Outreach was carried out in primary, high schools and tertiary institution. Among the schools reached were; Echariria primary school, Itherero primary school , lady Ann high School and Word Ablaze bible institute. The institutions were given a talk and shown a video on the reasons as to why we should conserve wildlife.
