The Land & Life rolled out its new Wildlife Warrior syllabus early this year in their supported schools. The first topic to be covered during the Wildlife Warrior club session was: ‘Animals and their surroundings’. The club members were taught about different animal species, their common habitats and modes of feeding followed by a group discussion. It was exciting to have some of the Elewana guides join the Land & Life team to share briefly about the topic and pass on their wealth of knowledge and expertise.
Based on their learnings from the sessions, students from the supported schools participated in a competition and they could choose from a range of categories, which varied from Essay writing about the Wildebeest Migration, Fun facts about a member of the Big Five to dramatizing and reciting songs/poems. The winning groups went home with trophies and school supplies. The overall winning groups will also have a chance to go for a game drive and a visit to their respective Elewana properties. The winning group from Esisteti Primary in Amboseli (Hare Group) which comprised of 9 students as well as the 2 club patrons, recently visited Elewana's Tortilis Camp and enjoyed a game drive in the conservancy.

The Land & Life Foundation is the charitable face of Elewana and Cheli & Peacock Safaris. Working with communities and conservation projects in the areas surrounding Elewana’s properties, the Land & Life Foundation supports local people and preserves the wildlife and habitats of these important landscapes. With all operational costs covered by Elewana, 100% of every single donation goes straight to benefiting the communities, schools and wildlife in the areas where we work. Land & Life believes that the sustainability of East Africa’s wildlife and habitats depends on four key actions: securing land for conservation, protecting species and their environment, providing tangible benefits to the people who live alongside wildlife, and educating the next generation of conservationists.
