Podcasts › #105 – Ephantus Mugo
This week Helen visits a small primary school in Ntumbiri in Northern Kenya to meet Ephantus Mugo – winner of Disney’s Conservation Hero Award 2020 – to find out and experience how children are learning the value of conservation to improve their lives.
Ephantus explains the challenges rural communities in Kenya face and how, in his role as Conservation Education Programme Coordinator for Lewa Conservancy, he’s helping them to solve those challenges and co-exist in harmony with the beautiful endangered species who share the land.
Ephantus grew up in the coffee producing area of Mount Kenya seeing nothing more than squirrels (!) in terms of wildlife. He tells Helen what drives him to make a difference and talks about the success of the Next Generation of Conservationists project pupils took part in with families from investment firm Ninety One.
