WCK is a Kenyan success story, but are are challenged to keep pace with the number of school children who are hungry for knowledge of their country, its magnificent wildlife resource, and challenges to their own and wild environments.
Half of Kenya’s population (35 million) is 18 and under, and we simply do not have 10 or 15 years to make a big difference to the future well being of Kenya’s natural environment. We may instead have only two or three years to consolidate a new generation of conservation minded young Kenyans.
We need a critical mass of future leaders, teachers, parents who associate African wildlife with the positive experiences they had in a Wildlife Club during their school days. WCK activities are well conceived, educational and fun for kids; it’s just that we urgently need to multiply our activities to reach more children, more quickly.
