The Climate Change Campaign

 By Gabriel:The climate change effects are now real. The rains are unpredictable. With a big percentage of the Africa population including Kenya depending on rain fed agriculture, then social and economic future of this region is blink. Climate change is also among the major threats facing our wildlife. In this year’s drought for example Kenya has lost 40 out of its 2000 grevy zebras, 600 hippos, over 200 elephants and hundreds of other species. The Wildlife Clubs of Kenya’s Mobile Conservation Education Unit, has embarked on serious measures of educating and involving the school children and public at large in combating the climate change effects and more specifically developing suitable adaptive and mitigation measures. In the month of July, September and October 2009 alone a total of 25,600 school children have benefited from this charitable wildlife education program. Extensive public educational programs, creating climate change publications, tree planting measures, proper ways of harvesting and storing water, balancing both wildlife and livestock requirements are some of the key measures in place.  Thousands of our school children have as well been involved in the Seal The Deal petition form signing ahead of the COP 15 Copenhagen summit this year. Your financial and material support will make it possible for us to jointly address this critical issue.  Nothing to eat   Dead Buffalo    Children Signing Climate petition forms
