East Africa Voluntary Charity Work: Kenya

Following several months in Tanzania (see previous post), I flew to Nairobi, caught the train to Mombassa (left pretty damn quick due to a cholera outbreak) and then worked my way up the Indian Ocean coast.

After a wonderful trip to Lamu island, I finally joined the Kenyan Wildlife Service and the Worldwide Fund for Nature at their Mkokoni base camp, close to the Somali border.

I had the privilege of working under the tutelege of Dr. Julie Church, the renowned scientist and advocate for conservation.

My tasks included community outreach awareness programme, collecting the huge amounts of tide-borne litter, and aiding in turtle conservation.
