Hello mangrove lovers!

We are happy to report we have had a busy few months engaging students and communities in conservation activities. You may have also received a certificate of appreciation from us for your very generous donation towards mangrove restoration. We provide everyone who donated towards the planting of new mangroves a certificate, so you can see how you contributed towards this vital project! If you did not receive this, please let us know!

Here's a breakdown of what we have been up to in the last quarter;

  • In August, we finished our summer programme with international students from Camps International. In total we completed 15 beach clean ups, removing over 35,000 items of trash. 
  • In September, we participated in the International Coastal Cleanup celebrations. We also returned to our weekly sessions on marine conservation at a local women's college.
  • In October, we joined forces with the Bahari Huru festival. They joined us in Kwale County to perform a drama piece on ocean conservation. This was a incredibly successful weekend with over 300 attendees. We also conducted a beach clean up, removing over 230kg of trash!

We are planning a visit to our wonderful mangrove partners in January to deliver the next donation. Once we have done this we will be able to report back on how they used the funds to further mangove conservation. 

Please do get in touch if you have any questions.

Thank you from all of us at Conservation Education Society!

Hi Friends!

We are excited to announce the launch of the ‘Women saving mangroves in Kenya!’ campaign has so far been a huge success, so far raising over $400 via the GlobalGiving!

At the end of March, we visited the Munje Tunusuru Conservation Women’s group to deliver over 500 empty milk cartons, which in turn will be used to pot mangrove seedlings. We also signed an MoU between ourselves and the group to formalise this new partnership! We are excited to be supporting these fantastic women in their fight to save mangroves.

In June, we held our 3rd annual Sea Turtle Festival and were able to fund for the women to join us on the day, providing them with a stall to showcase their work and products! Furthermore, we were able to hand over our first donation in support of their work at the festival. If was great to see them engage with schools, other NGO’s and residents and we hope through these interactions we can help increase both awareness of their work and the funding they receive, you can keep updated with the festival by following us on @DianiSeaTurtleFestival.

In other news, we have been gearing up to our international summer programme, which will start in a few weeks, this entails a 1-day education programme on marine life with several groups visiting form the UK. In May and June, we also ran programmes for a Dubai student group and international schools visiting from Nairobi. This was through our partners Camps International and Outdoor Infinity.

A newsletter for this period as well as a Sea Turtle Festival newsletter will be available in July, but in the mean time you can check out our last newsletter by clicking HERE!

We want to say a special thank you for contributing to the ‘Women saving mangroves in Kenya!’ project, this is an going programme and any support you can give will go a long way in helping these women restore, preserve and protect vital mangroves in Kenya!

Until next time!
