The Easter of 2022 was marked with families spending quality time together, unlike the last two years where the Covid-19 pandemic had hit hard. Most people sought out recreational centers to celebrate this day with their loved ones, either to interact with nature through forests, national parks and drives to various tourist destinations.
During this time, 3Es Experience was at the forefront in Nairobi National Park to ensure our park ecosystems were maintained for the purposes of environmental conservation and wildlife protection through the Waste Free Parks Initiative.
This initiative has worked to sensitize tourists on the importance of proper waste disposal while simultaneously issuing litter bags as a follow up action. “During Easter 2022, over 72 man hours have been put on the ground by the teams in distribution over 500 non-biodegradable litter bags, sensitizing over 3,000 visitors who came touring the Nairobi National Park on waste management. “We have encouraged them to conserve the earth and participate in wildlife protection, by responsibly handling their wastes and plastics,” said Vivian Kemboi, Founder & Executive Director of 3Es Experience Organization.
A challenge we encountered was the lack of weight people gave to environmental matters but we look forward to creating awareness to as many people as possible as we look to advance to other areas and parks in the country.
