Wildlife Field Trip For Kenyan Children.

Kenyan School Children

If you are new to The Tiniest Tiger community, you might not know that we love all animals.  We focus on big and small cats but we love all animals big and small. I have loved elephants since I was a child.  Honestly….do you know anyone that doesn’t?

Today is #GivingTuesday,  a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.  Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy.

Wildlife Field Trip for Kenyan School Children

Thanks to your support of Triple T Studios, The Tiniest Tiger community is sponsoring a field trip for Kenyan children. This trip includes a dedicated 29-seat Field Bus, funded by the Dulverton Trust.  A leader from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Anti-Poaching Team will accompany and guide 25 children and 3 teachers on a full day’s conservation trip, including a healthy lunch, to introduce and teach the children about their national heritage and the importance of protecting it.

A large number of Kenyan children have never seen an elephant, or even the most common of wildlife species due to the associated costs of visiting National Parks in Kenya. For this reason the Trust arranges free field trips into Tsavo East and West National Parks, encouraging children to form Wildlife Clubs and embrace their wildlife and environment.

I had a wish come true when I visited The David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi. Now we are able to give back to local children the joy of seeing elephants and nurture the desire to protect them.

    Thank you so much for doing this, it touched my heart!! I had a dream trip to Kenya this past summer and was able to visit many of their national reserves and parks while on safari and I also visited the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust elephant orphanage! While on safari, a couple of times I saw large buses in the parks that carried school children and was so happy to see them getting exposure to their magical lands. It reminded me of my school field trips to the zoo – although, obviously not quite the same. How fortunate these children are to see their beloved animals wild and free and I can only hope that they grow up to take the torches to protect and preserve their precious wildlife. Thank you for paying it forward in so many ways – just another reason I love this site and store. You inspire others to do their part and then some…
