#givingtuesday and the last day of our campaign, is finally here and we need your help to finish strong! be inspired by the story of sam, an alumnus of our program who's come full circle. as a young cattle herder, he wondered how he could transform his community. today, his work is helping strengthen community conservancies across northern kenya. please tap link in bio to support our education fund. thanks to our matching fund, every donation given today, will be doubled. #lewawildlifeconservancy #givingtuesday #education #conservation #impact #northernkenya #bignorth

15-year-old jecinta dreams of ending child marriage and becoming a lawyer. she says,"because of wildlife, i have been to school, and i am happy." 18-year-old josephine, on the other hand, dreams of becoming a doctor in her community of leparua, which closely neighbours lewa. here at lewa, we are committed to helping them and hundreds of other children from our neighbouring communities achieve their dreams. the generosity of friends like you makes it possible for us to do so. help us transform more lives by tapping link in bio- http://bit.ly/2jg8h95 video: steve toom #giving tuesday #lewawildlifeconservancy #boranaconservancy #education #conservation #impact

What a delight to witness the first few moments of life! this footage of a new born elephant calf was captured on lewa recently at the onset of the rains. at any one time, the lewa-borana landscape provides a safe home to approximately 400-600 of northern kenya's migratory elephants. long may you roam, little one! video: @pilot_lemaiyan #elephants #lewawidlifeconservancy #boranawildlifeconservancy #nature #animals #naturelovers #whyilovekenya #wildlife #kenya #africa #love

lewa_wildlife What lovely features you have, young one! an adorable up close shot of a baby reticulated giraffe captured on lewa by award-winning sculptor @hamish_mackie. recent reports have indicated that 4 distinct species make up giraffe populations in africa, rather than one species with several sub-species as previously thought. the lewa-borana landscape is home to the reticulated giraffe, a species perfectly suited to the hot, dry climate of northern kenya. #lewawildlifeconservancy #boranawildlifeconservancy #giraffe #nature #animals #naturelovers #whyilovekenya

lewa_wildlife Wrapping up the week with the some excellent news- @lewawilderness was announced the winner in the 'best family experience in kenya' category at the safari awards 2018 yesterday! this stunning lodge is situated on a steep valley making for an excellent landscape and wildlife viewing experience. a leisurely dip in the infinity pool, game-viewing on horse-back and bi-plane rides are just some of the activities the entire family can enjoy while staying at this breath-taking property. πŸ“·: stevie mann #lewawildlifeconservancy #boranaconservancy #lewawilderness #safari #whyilovekenya #holiday #travel #seetheworld #youshouldbehere

lewa_wildlife Huge milestones! wishing these bright faces all the best as they begin their national examinations today after months of hard work and preparation! in total, 55 of our sponsored students will sit this year's examinations after which they will proceed to a new stage of education. our education programme remains one of the most impactful ways that lewa demonstrates conservation has the power to transform the fate of communities. #lewa #lewawildlifeconservancy #borana #conservation #education

Here on lewa, we believe that wildlife, people and culture are inextricably linked. @lewa_house's new video sums this ethos up perfectly- "coming on safari is like shining a mirror on your own culture...the whole spectrum of life is unfolding in front of you and you are witnessing it." . every year we welcome at least 5000 guests to lewa. each of these visits is essential to the success of our work and a direct contribution to the continuity of our programmes. #lewawildlifeconservancy #lewahouse #whyilovekenya #safari #magicalkenya

It’s not always that we’re able to help wildlife in need, and some cases, such as this one, can be heartbreaking. a few weeks ago, a herd of elephants entered lewa through our northern gap. part of the herd was a young, sickly and emaciated female elephant - closer inspection revealed she had a broken leg that made it difficult for her to fetch food and water, which was worsened by the ongoing drought across northern kenya. the drought had meant that even healthy animals were struggling to survive, and here on lewa, we had started to feed lactating rhinos to supplement their nutrition. our resident vet dr mutinda explains: “when we got to her, it was obvious this was going to a hugely challenging case. i did not try to immobilise her, as she was already very weak from malnutrition and dehydration. her broken leg was clearly something we couldn’t fix, and her body condition had deteriorated drastically. we tried to give her water, we tried to help her get up but she was too weak. we tried all we could, but she did not make it.” luckily, her calf was old enough to care for itself, and it rejoined the herd. some good news is that the rains are finally here, meaning an end to a long and desperate wait for the people of northern kenya. #elephants #nature #wildlifevet #lewawildlifeconservancy #boranaconservancy
