An Evening with Richard Dreyfuss & MWCT San Diego January 23, 2014
RSVP requested by this Friday, January 17th.
Plan to attend a star-studded evening with U.C. San Diego faculty members, the founder of the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (MWCT), and actor and activist Richard Dreyfuss as they share their perspectives, insights and experiences from visiting and working in Kenya.
The evening’s topic will focus on the Maasai living the Kuku Group Ranch. The Kuku Group Ranch is home to roughly 16,000 people and lies in an important migration corridor of around 280,000 acres that is at the base of Chyulu Hills, Hemingway’s, “Green Hills of Africa,” between Tsavo and Amboseli National Parks.
Learn first-hand about major Maasai threats and concerns including conservation, health care, education and energy access, and discover past, present and future MWCT programs focused on protecting the legendary ecosystems and astounding biodiversity of East Africa.
In line with the MWCT’s pioneering partnership between professional conservationists and dynamic young Maasai leaders dedicated to showing that the Maasai community can thrive, all programs are developed jointly with the Maasai community on a knowledge-sharing basis—creating and implement holistic and comprehensive programs.
