We visited Helen and Pete, founders of the Milgis Trust based in Northern Kenya. The trust ultimately aims to conserve the wildlife, habitat and pastoral people's way of life. It's an incredible community perched on the summit of El Kanto Hill. Over the past 20 years they’ve developed working relationships and most importantly trust with the Samburu, Turkana and Rendille tribes. They've created safe drinking water infrastructure, brought conservation to a nomadic area and successfully reintroduced Elephant and Lion. Visiting the camp was a truly privileged experience.
Whilst we were there RAW Foundation gave a talk to all the Milgis scouts. We hope this was informative and that the message of the dangers of plastics will carry far and wide.
