WildlifeDirect has been conducting pioneering work on combating wildlife crime in Africa. Our Eyes in the Courtroom program monitors every wildlife trial in the country to examine how the judicial system is working as a means of providing transparency, and to support law enforcement. Our work has led to strengthened enforcement efforts, enactment of better laws improvement in prosecutions including the arrest and prosecution of high level criminals.
Children can learn about wildlife from their immediate environment by something as simple as growing plants and observing insects. Our Wildlife Warriors program is a powerful network of schools across the country that brings wildlife into classroom through books and films, and takes children into the parks to be awed and inspired by our wondrous wildlife. We engage schools in meaningful activities like citizen science, photography, habitat protection and ecosystem restoration. Our model is to provide training and materials to teachers so that they can empower children to make a difference in their own communities, addressing conservation and human-wildlife conflict.
Our Community program aims to promote a peaceful relationship between communities and wildlife. We involve members of wildlife affected communities in innovation camps to engage with engineers, innovators and investors in devising solutions to their challenges from elephants raiding farms, to lions attacking their livestock. Our approach is to provide the assistance for communities to solve problems that they have identified like how to avoid snake bites. Each year we conduct a ten days of field research with communities as part of this program.
WildlifeDirect is the only African conservation organization that is developing wildlife documentaries for local audiences. Our first series NTV Wild in partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service and NTV Kenya about the challenges facing wildlife in Kenya. It garnered audiences of 5 million per week and is the main source of wildlife information in Kenya. We are currently producing a new wildlife series targeting a youth audience and schools.
