At only 7 kilometers from the Kenyan capital, Nairobi National Park has a Savannah teeming with wildlife and a wonderful view of the Nairobi skyline. The collection of wildlife is really impressive. The park is home to the worlds largest number of the almost extinct black rhinos, as well as buffalos, lions and zebras.
Many of these animals used to be plentiful, roaming freely in the Nairobi Park. But now at least one of these species is endangered. This can only be explained by human actions. Humans would use or eat these animals without being worried about conserving them. If people had a stronger sense of conservation and the importance of these animals in their ecosystems and in their importance to us as people, then maybe we would still be able to have large populations of these animals around us. Conservation means a lot to The Nairobi Greenline because without it, ecosystems would fall apart and animals will become extinct.
To the north and East of the Nairobi Park is a forest growing – The Nairobi Greenline. This forest is a buffer zone to protect the park from extinction.
Within this forest, the Nairobi Greenline has marked selected scenic sections to create picnic sites. These picnic sites will serve people walking and riding on the walking/jogging trail.
We invite you to “adopt” one picnic site.
When you Adopt a Picnic Site with the Nairobi Greenline you become a part of the ongoing conservation programme that is set to secure the future of the Nairobi Park from extinction.
COST OF ADOPTING ONE PICNIC SITE: KSH 5 MILLION
- The Greenline has embarked on creating 12 picnic sites
- These will be all accessible by a trail/walk way, that will also be created
- This is the next big project that we have embarked on, and will also be a major fund-raising project
- Piped water to the picnic sites, plus long-drop toilets, raised view points, benches, are all part of this exciting stage we are at
