successful awareness campaign around the northern mountains…return the traditional conservation ways…

Before I start!… News on the cheetah cub is good, getting better… very playful…no more fits!! This is written by the manager of the Milgis Trust… I like his traditional way of thinking… it may be quite long… but its interesting!! Lately there has been a real increase in elephant’s movement to the north. For […]

The baby cheetah is BEAUTIFUL!!

Oh but its already been through a lot, poor little thing… There was 5 cubs and this one couldn’t keep up with the family, and was found by some children, as I said before things are looking up!!… In the past they would have killed it, but attitudes are changing, and they picked it up […]

I am back in the Milgis… and firstly would like to thank you all of you…Especially to Karen P, Laurens H, and Anna M… So much thanks for the donations…greatly appreciated… We appreciate every penny, and also every one that gives us encouragement in words is invaluable… … In the mean time Moses Lesoloyia has […]

Richard, Thank you for your support on this Matthews Saga… I am delighted that you have brought these valuable forests in Northern Kenya to the lime light… This whole thing with Luca managing to get a licence to cut a substantial count of fully grown indigenous trees for research, will funnily enough I hope, end […]

Trying again…

Matthews Range forest destruction continued…

Unbelievably the researcher managed to cut trees down in 9 different places before the community discovered what was going on and went in to the Ngeng valley and chased them out… They were extremely angry… But the researcher has been back and has paid/has promised to pay the community money so that he can continue… […]

Forest destruction in Matthews range in the name of research…to go with last blog…

Money talks!!….

Shocking pictures of forest destruction in the name of Research…

Reminds me of the kind of research the Japanese are doing on the whales!! Unbelievable that this researcher managed to get permission from the forestry dept. in a time when it is almost impossible to get any kind of permit in Kenya to cut trees, let alone in a protected forest……Whats worse is a university […]
