At Ol Pejeta, we strongly believe that if the next generation of children is educated about conservation, we have won half the battle to save our planet and its endangered species. Thus were happy to receive students from Nairobi’s Banda School, who took part in our dog tracking activity and heard first hand from Zachariah, Fatu and Najin's devoted keeper. Earlier in the year, the students had held a safari themed fundraiser at their school and managed to raise Kshs 95,910 (close to US$1,000) towards our conservation work. With these much needed funds, we purchased a nebulizer, which has gone a long way to help administer medication to wildlife, and three binoculars for rhino monitoring by our rangers. We thank the children of the Banda School for choosing to support Ol Pejeta Conservancy and for making the world a better place.
It’s a wrap for The Last Male Standing Rhino Cup 2019! In an exciting final against Obuya Cricket Academy, Kanbis Sports Club has won this year’s tournament! 🦏 Meanwhile, GRIT, an incredible team from Mauritius, who have donated over $12,500 each year at the tournament, were awarded the Sudan Memorial Cup by making the highest donation once more. 🦏
We would also like to recognise British Army Training Unit, Kenya - BATUK, who were the main supporters of the event’s logistics and infrastructure. They had a successful final, winning both their matches and getting The Wooden Spoon Trophy. 🦏 Congratulations to all the teams on a fantastic effort towards rhino conservation and thank you to all the spectators who came to support them. 🦏 #LastMaleStanding#KanbisSportsClub#Cricket#OlPejetaRhinos#ObuyaCricketAcademy#BATUK

Close to 200 cricketers have converged for the Last Male Standing Rhino Cup, commemorating the life of Sudan, the last known male northern white rhino, and to raise awareness of the plight of his near-extinct species. The tournament has seen players from Australia, South Africa, Mauritius and England participate, along with local Kenyan teams from around Nairobi and Laikipia. The Foundation for Youth Cricket & Education in Kenya, The Obuya Cricket Academy and The East Africa Cricket & Education Foundation are three high-profile charity-related teams participating in the event. 📷 Anthony Ochieng #LastMaleStanding#OlPejeta#Cricket#WorldCricketers#LoveCricket
