The Wildlife Clubs of Kenya had earlier own requested for a material support from the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). Last month the RSPB donated 4 pairs of binoculars. Through the RSPB International Environment Education manager Barrie Cooper we (WCK) send our sincere gratitudes for this kind donation . The binoculars would be used at the Wajee Nature Park. This is a hot spot for the endangered Hindes babbler, only six members of this species are found here. We would also like to appreciate Brenton H and many others who joined us in ‘Save the Hindes babbler campaign’ by giving a kind financial donation early this year.
More material and financial support is highly welcomed. More binoculars, bird guides, camping facilities and conservation publications are needed for the increasing number of school students, local and international visitors who visit the site in search of the Hindes babbler. WCK now focuses on effectively educating and involving the local school children and communities in conserving this vital habitat. In the month of September alone 20 schools and over 5,000 school children were visited, educated and fully incorporated in the Hindes babbler awareness campaign by the WCK’s Mobile Conservation Education Unit.
