In the afternoon we were in a celebratory mood. We held a farewell party for the outgoing Form 4s and had not one, not two, but three cakes for them! Each year we appreciate our Wildlife Warrior Club patrons by awarding them with shopping gift vouchers and certificates. This year we went a step further and selected the Patron of the Year – none other than Phillip Njenga from Amboseli! Phillip was unanimously voted by the Land & Life team for his selfless dedication to our mission and vision. He has gone over and beyond his call of duty to ensure the smooth running of our Wildlife Warrior Activities at Esiteti Primary School.
After enjoying the delicious cake, snacks and soft drinks the scholars also received their certificates of attendance, and everyone celebrated into the evening with dinner and laughter.
This year’s retreat was different from previous ones because the children engaged in a much wider variety of practical conservation-based activities than they have in the past, something that we at Life & Life Foundation have always aspired to do. Our goal has always been to ensure that we give them the tools, skills, exposure and experience that they will remember for years to come – whether or not they decide to work in the tourism and conservation industry because after all they are our youngsters, our future Wildlife Warrior ambassadors!
