Activities

Wildlife Clubs of Kenya in conjunction with other stakeholders organize clean ups in all parts of Kenya. The clean up s are conducted to mark the work clean up day. During this day schools do a number of clean up events including cleaning their school compounds, local town centers, wildlife habitats and national parts. A good example is the annual cleanup event around Nairobi national park conducted by wildlife clubs of Kenya in conjunction with the Giraffe center, Kenya wildlife service, Nakumatt Galleria amongst other stakeholders.

Wildlife Clubs of Kenya has taken a leading role in anti-poaching and bush meat campaigns in the country. From 1979-1983 Kenya’s elephant numbers dropped from 153,000 to 19,000. The school wildlife clubs petitioned the country in putting a hunting ban and as well in fighting poaching. Since then club members have taken part in campaigns against poaching and bush meat trade, the latest being the 2013 campaigns following the emerging poaching activities in the country. Campaigns against bush meat are conducted through de-snaring activities whereby wire snare traps are removed by club members in conservation spots. The aim is to make our wildlife habitats safe for the animals and to inculcate a responsible conservation attitude among the youth.

Wildlife Clubs of Kenya has for many years been using wildlife and conservation as an educational tool. Schools can as well access and use wildlife films in the WCK film library. WCK also makes short film documentaries to address local conservation issues with schools and communities
