The Word Forest Organisation Talk
April 22 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm£35
The Word Forest Organisation Talk is the first in the series of #ConservationConversations at The Big Cat Sanctuary for 2018.
The joint presentation looks at reforestation and the resulting wildlife populations, with insights into conservation initiatives with our MD, Giles Clark and Ru Hartwell from The Word Forest Organisation.
Ru Hartwell, Trustee and Forestry Expert will talk about planting new forests in Kenya, how they are raising environmental awareness and helping the surrounding communities to take care of the trees, which in turn helps to improve the health of our planet for all its inhabitants.
Giles Clark, Conservationist and Big Cat Expert, will be talking about how to mitigate the wildlife:human conflict as this essential habitat is replaced, and wild cats return.
You will also have the opportunity to wander our site to see all the beautiful wild cats, and the chance to win a handfeed experience on the day!
Tickets are £35 per person, for 11 years and over. Free parking.
The Word Forest Organisation is a charity dedicated to planting new forests in Bore, Kenya, building schools in the impoverished communities that surround them & empowering the children & villagers to take care of the trees.
They create nurseries and plant new trees on deforested land and empower community educators to raise awareness of forestry guardianship and wider environmental issues. The increased reforestation will help bring back the normal rain seasons and also have an enormously positive impact on levels of wildlife in the area, as biodiversity begins to flourish once more.
The trees will also provide the communities with an income from the commodities produced by the trees: medicine from the neem, water purifiers from the moringa seeds, food from the cashews, charcoal and building poles from germina, casuarina and more.
