Kenya has some of the most fascinating species of wildlife, with positive human-animal interactions that are rooted in their heritage for all generations to see.
Conflicting interests in the guise of poaching and wildlife trophy trafficking, however, have over the years been threatening the very existence of what may be considered to be Africa’s endangered species, thus exacerbating the imbalance of our ecosystem.
In this podcast, we explore the drive to save the last of African wildlife and Kenya’s conservancy movement to sustain a fair and equal chance for human-animal coexistence.
Our host Sonia Galat is joined by Ian Lemaiyn, Assistant Security Administrator and Wildlife Pilot with the Northern Rangelands Trust, as he offers his view on the impact of Social Media on conservation, community development, and suppressing the negative effects of climate change.
What will you learn?
- How social media could impact countries that are consumers of animal wildlife.
- The role of social media in influencing the protection of wildlife.
- How local communities are engaged, so they become advocates of wildlife conservation.
