Spot! Snap! Share!
What comes to your mind when you hear the three words Spot! Snap! Share! Mentioned? Definitely sounds like something fun and Yes! It was a fun filled event aimed at championing Environmental conservation and Wildlife protection.
Amidst the Covid - 19 pandemic, 31st October 2020 was a fun day to interact with loved ones and the wild at the Nairobi National Park. Early in the morning people arrived with a lot of enthusiasm for the day with phones, cameras and tablets fully charged and ready for the game drive aim being to Spot! Snap! and Share! With a very energetic master of ceremony teams started with a team building warm up and we even ended up dancing the famous Jerusalema dance challenge.
With teams charged up for the activity, KWS officials grouped the people present into different blocks for the animal census and fun activity of sharing the beautiful pictures of wildlife on social media. The main activity was to involve the general public in understanding the diversity of wildlife within the Nairobi National Park through counting and sharing using the hashtags #SpotSnapShare and #IAmTheConservationGeneration on social media.
We were hereby privileged to be in the 3rd Block of counting where we experienced a diverse range of wild animals for example the rock python, the Nile crocodile, the coke hartebeests, gazelles, impala, the egyptian goose, gray heron, male and female ostriches, blacksmith plover, wildebeests, elands, marabou stork, lions, rhinos, zebras, giraffes just to mention but a few. The Nairobi National Park ecosystem is a true depiction of Nature's beauty and diversity. You should visit the Park and experience the diverse beauty of creation.
